Looking for a host to tell jokes, dance with guests and never be at a loss for words? Give the celebs a break, and try a life-sized robot who always says the right thing--and in four to five languages, if necessary. International Robotics Inc. rents several varieties of multilingual robots that can be programmed with a script or operated by a technician via a wireless remote control. The White House, Olympic Committee and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani have used the robots, which rent for $2,600 to $3,500. --Jill Musguire (Photo courtesy of International Robotics)
