Got A Sharper Image Robosapien V2 Today

I ran out and picked up one of the Sharper Image robots today. He's dark grey with blue LED's for eyes and black trim. I've heard people complain about the time it takes to unpackage the unit, but if you have a good pair of real wire cutters and a very sharp knife (be careful!), you can do it in about 15 minutes including battery installation. So far he's been more than hilarious and I'm dying to start using him with Robosapien Dance Machine. I almost never get the extended replacement warranties with electronics, but with my and this new V2, I got the two year extended warranty. Unlike a CD player or an iPod he has a lot of moving parts and motors that could wear out. I find it comforting to know I can just run down to the local Sharper Image store where I bought the V2 and just get a new one if it fails.

He has tons of functions; so many that the remote control has 3 shift buttons! I'll be able to replace all those complex keyboard combinations with simple voice commands, which will make interacting with him tons more fun. Of course, I will make a video so you can share the excitement and get a few laughs too. Much, much, more coming soon...
