The Roboraptor is Coming!

The new dinosaur robot from WowWee Toys is almost here. I'm very excited about this robot because it is chock full of sensors. Not only does it have the touch sensors like the original Robosapien did, it also has dual infrared sensors. But the best news is that it has stereo sound sensors. This opens up exciting new possibilities for hacking and modifying the robot by adding the ability to identify objects by the sounds they make.

If you want to discuss this robot visit the Roboraptor forum. This web page will keep track of the latest hacking efforts using the Roboraptor robot.
