USA : Wal-Mart now has Robosapien RS Media

Wal-Mart now has the Robosapien RS Media for sale. I've been having great fun with mine for the last few months, which I got overseas. In other news WowWee and Sun, Inc. are working out the kinks in getting a full fledged Java programming language SDK running on the Robosapien RS Media for the hard core programmer types out there. If you've been waiting to pick one up now's the time.

Just a note, the Robosapien RS Media is battery hungry. WowWee specifically tells you not to use rechargeable batteries so I have to give you that same recommendation. But I'd also have to tell you that I use Radio Shack rechargeable batteries in mine along with a RadioShack universal charger. I play with mine a lot and I'd spend a fortune in batteries if I didn't use rechargeables. You will have to make your own choice and take your own risks. Remember, the Robosapien RS Media uses 6 "D" cell batteries and 4 "AA" batteries. Here's some handy RadioShack links if you do decide to use rechargeables:

1.2V/4500mAh Ni-MH Rechargeable Batteries - 2-Pack "D"
1.2V/2000mAh AA Ni-MH Rechargeable Batteries - 2-Pk
Universal Ni-Cd/Ni-MH Battery Charger

In any case, it's a great little robot and if you'd like to see what a high quality custom personality sounds like, you can go to my Vadersapien page and listen to a sample of the a custom personality that sounds like Darth Vader's little brother; which I made for my Robosapien RS Media. If you already have an RS Media, or if you get one of these talented little bots later, you can download the entire Vadersapien personality and use it yourself for free. You can read about it's features and see a video of it on my Robosapien RS Media page.

Here's a newer video done by a WowWee staff member where they show you some of the robot's features and talk a little about the included software editing suite:
