i-SOBOT Review : The White i-SOBOT Is For Japan
Pictures, Videos, and more Information on i-SOBOT.
Lem at Robots Dreams, one of our favorite robotics sites, has just posted about the white i-SOBOT. The white i-SOBOT is intended for Japan while the black i-SOBOT is for the USA. In his post he points out that the black and white i-SOBOT's are functionally identical, except for the color and the language that i-SOBOT speaks and recognizes. There are minor differences in the packaging but in both cases it's incredibly easy to remove i-SOBOT from his box. There are no straps, ties, or glue. You just open the box and pull i-SOBOT out! The only tool you need is a small screwdriver, and that's only for taking off the breast plate so you can insert the Eneloop rechargeable batteries.
As usual, the post is packed with great high quality photos. Best of all, it shows a thumbnail of the upcoming winter issue of Robot Magazine, which features the i-SOBOT robot and another fantastic article by Lem. Robot Magazine, especially this issue, is a must read for any robot fan.
