RoboCop? There’s an app for him…

A question: how old is RoboCop? No smart-arse answers about bits of him being a certain age and other bits being ‘renewable’ please.

The correct answer is he’s nearly 25. And to celebrate the imminent anniversary, MGM Studios has launched an official iPhone app, offering a mixture of video clips and soundbites.

There’s also a ‘RoboMouth’ feature that displays RoboCop’s mouth full-screen, so you can put it in front of your own lips and get him to say whatever you want (“Why was I rejected for that role in The Bill?” perhaps).

You might wonder who cares enough about a 25 year-old movie to buy a soundbite app for their iPhone. But, well… probably best not to.
