The Robopet has 2 modes that you can switch it on into: edge detection and non-edge detection. In case you're wondering why there is a non-edge detection mode when edge detection sounds like such a good feature, the reason is that on some surfaces, edge detection doesn't work as well and the Robopet may constantly think it's near an edge...

I have to say, after some time playing with the new FlyTech Bat from WowWee today, I am impressed, and I'd like to get you a quick preview of what's in store.

FemiSapien, the most agile walking female robot to date, has made her debut at CES this year! You can interact with her using sight, sound or touch. Her 4-way joystick hands can be used to change her motion, and even to program a sequence of moves.

You all know him by his cryptic RoboCommunity nickname: RobosapienV2-4mem8 (or “4mem8” for short).

And we all admire his work as the ultimate Robo-hacker diarist. I felt like an eyewitness to an obsessively curious mind when I read his unique 3-part work: “How I Replaced Roboquad's Eyes and Mouth.”

4mem8 then followed...
