Eddie Codel got a robotic hamster for Christmas, and he made a short video about it here.


  1. In a world where cats ride Roombas while batting dogs about the face, I question if this video has the requisite levels of either whimsy or violence to be allowed on the internet.

    1. Nah. A cat’s not really boring until you can do this with live rodents and get the same reaction. I’ve put mice, rats and gerbils literally on top of my two cats, and they just act like the little wiggling thing is a small strange kitten.

  2. Ok the toy can be called by many means a ridiculous toy, but the edit on this video, and the soundtrack chosen makes this the funnest video I’ve seen in a long while, I laughed outloud and now I really want one of those hamsters! long live the robohamster, truer hamster than any ZhuZhu will ever be!

  3. Adorable! And I love the James Bond music. I own a robot cat (she doesn’t do much except for purr and knead), but this seems like a really cool robotic pet. And maybe smarter than actual hamsters? Definitely braver.

  4. They should have used the music from Terminator, with some dialogue:

    Sarah Connor: Just let me go!
    Kyle Reese: Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

    Kyle Reese: [interrupts] Look! You’ve heard enough! I have answered your questions! Now I have to see Sarah Connor!
    Dr. Silberman: I’m afraid that’s not up to me.
    Kyle Reese: Then why am I talking to you? Who is in authority here?
    Dr. Silberman: Please, I-
    Kyle Reese: SHUT UP! [glares the camera] You still don’t get it, do you!? He’ll find her! That’s what he does! It’s all he does! You can’t stop him! He’ll wade through you, reach down her throat, and tear her fuckin’ heart out!!
