Here's a new video with inventor Mark Tilden where he talks about WowWee's new Robosapien RS Media and some of his other robots. It's a fun video because Mr. Tilden has the gift of showmanship as well as being a talented inventor.

Nocturnal, an elite Evosapien team robot hacker, has already gotten his Robosapien RS Media robot. In his usual fashion has already begun tearing apart the new robot from WowWee Toys and inventor Mark Tilden. Bad for his bot, good for us! In a long detailed thread on the Unofficial Robosapien Hacks and Mods forum, he shares what he's discovered so far about the Linux operating system and file system on the RS Media, and tidbits he's gleaned in regards to command macros and sensor data the robot puts out. The good stuff begins on page 3, but you should read the entire thread.

Here's a video on YouTube that gives you some idea of what the Robosapien RS Media is like; although it's more of a commercial than a review.

The Daily Telegraph, an Australian publication, has a new article on the Robosapien RS Media that talks about the product launch in Sydney. There is not much new in article in the way of reported features, and only a single photograph of the lucky Robosapien RS Media posing with Miss Universe entrant Erin McNaught. The most highlighted feature of the robot was it's ability to store custom voice and multimedia files selected by the user and play them back; In this case, the voices of several celebrities including Ms. McNaught's.

The official web site for the Robosapien RS Media is now online. It's a very slick Flash based web site with supporting audio files. There are no videos on the site yet but hopefully that will change soon. The site does go into the technical specifications for the robot and confirms that the robot does indeed run an embedded form of Linux. In addition, the BodyCon movement editing and other customization software will run on computers running Windows XP. Many of the robot's features are broken out in different screens so you can get a good idea of what you can expect from the successor to the Robosapien V2.
