While it doesn't look like there will be AIBOs scampering around Toyota offices anytime soon, it appears that the company has in fact turned to Sony for some of their robotics-related expertise. According to the AP, the two companies will be working together to develop an "innovative, intelligent, single-seat vehicle" as part of a deal that stems from Toyota's acquisition of various Sony technology and patents earlier this year. Under the new partnership, seven Sony researchers have started to work temporarily in Toyota's robot research unit, helping Toyota make sense of the technology. While details on the vehicle itself are light, as the AP points out, Toyota's i-swing "personal mobility vehicle" does seem to meet the general description. In related news, Toyota also officially unveiled its TPR-Robina showroom guide robot today, which we're guessing has already given those visiting Sony researchers a suitably creepy welcoming.

THAT is what I'm talking about.

So lame that people are forced to laugh.

How about this one:

Question: How do you catch a bear?

Answer: You dig a hole in the ground and fill it half full with ashes. Put peas around the outside of the hole. When the bear goes to take a pea you kick it in the ash-hole.
