Boomy! The KXLL Boombox Robot can pick up objects in a rudimentary fashion, make an amazing dirty martini, and plays KXLL – Excellent Radio at an inappropriately loud volume! Boomy loves the radio as much as artificial intelligence allows, and if you try to take it away from him he will exercise his prime directive and eliminate you with his lasers. WE LOVE BOOMY!!
