Great New Robots From Wow Wee Toys!

Mark Tilden says his Robosapien robot is on a quest for world domination. But I think the former NASA scientist is out to dominate the world of toys himself, and he is well on track to do so. Here is a list of new toys that are coming out in the second half of 2005, with links to read more about them:

  • Robosapien V2 - the much anticipated sequel to the original Robosapien

  • Mini Robosapien - half the size but twice the fun

  • Robopet- Robosapien's skinny but talented dog

  • Roboraptor - Robots and dinosaurs come together. Every child's dream!

    Our Very Own Robosapien Robot Movie Is Just About Ready!

    I used my two Robosapien robots as actors in a movie. It's almost ready. To make the movie I created a piece of custom software to control them through an Infrared Transceiver device, connected to my PC. The software orchestrated the movements of my pair of Robosapiens in intricate ways that were just not remotely possible (pun intended) with the one-shot macro capability of the Robosapien's remote control. The software is hosted at SourceForge. Here is a direct link to the Robosapien Dance Machine project. No files have been released yet, but they will be soon after the video has been released.
