Robopet Vs. I-Cybie : Coming Soon

I have had several people ask me how the i-Cybie robotic dog compares to the Robopet. I did some research and got some basic comparison information. For example, the responds to voice commands after you have trained it on your voice, the responds to anyone's voice commands but only with the help of Robosapien Dance Machine. The i-Cybie can recharge itself when it gets low on juice, the Robosapien runs a lot longer on his batteries than the i-Cybie can. The Robopet can run for many many hours on his batteries vs. about 1 1/2 hours for the i-Cybie under heavy usage. The Robopet costs about $100 the i-Cybie around $180.

But that was not enough for me so I have ordered an i-Cybie robot. When it shows up, I'll follow up with a full comparison of the two popular robotic dogs and possibly a video showing them in action, side-by-side. What is of greatest interest to me is how much you can alter the personality of the i-Cybie vs. the Robopet. If you have a Robopet you know you can use the Punish and Reward buttons on the remote control to alter the frequency that it does particular tricks. I don't know how this works with the i-Cybie or if you even can punish and reward him. I'll know soon and so will you.

If you have any questions about either robot dog that you would like answered in the comparison review, leave a comment and put the question in your comment.

Comments:
When will the voice control for Robopet be available. I like you purchased an I cybie for my daughters birthday because it had the voice control. I would like to use the Robopet however.

Thanks.
 
alphonsobrown,

I'm still trying to figure out how long it will take me to debug all the new bugs that crept in during the feature upgrades (which were massive). Keep watching this blog for a progress update.
