It looks like the holiday nuttiness is happening again just like last year. Buy.com is letting the Robosapien RS Media robot go for a $149 while quantities last. This robot cost over $400 when I got mine. It is the same robot I created the Elmosapien and Vadersapien custom personalities for. Each personality has hundreds of custom sound files in them. Note a personality is a different set of custom sound and voice files and existing user defined scripts. It's not a new A.I. or anything like that.
The personality software can be daunting for a novice user, but even without the software it's one hell of a robot that comes complete with 4 different built-in personalities. If you get one, be sure to get the two custom personalities I mention above since they're free and of excellent quality (IMHO). Elmosapien got covered by pretty much every major gadget web site there is including: Engadget, Gizmodo, C|Net, etc. Ok, I'm bragging here but you can watch the video that went viral at the bottom of this post.
