January 8, 2011 |  8:33 am

The one thing "Despicable Me" really proved last year was that having minions can be fun. There were several robot and personal assistant devices being shown at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Among them was Karotz, a tall-eared eager-to-serve Wi-Fi device from Mindscape.It can fetch from Twitter and Facebook and can report the weather as well. You can listen to MP3s and make phone calls over the Internet through Karotz.

It will cost $179 and should be available in the spring.
