Just two days before Christmas 2006, a big heavy box landed on the door step of the TechCast Network office. With as much excitement and enthusiasm as a small boy on Christmas day, I promptly yet carefully tore open the box to reveal the coolest toy I’ve ever come across...

Like the Robopet, the Robosapien V2 and the Roboraptor were created with built-in interactivity. We wanted to share this interaction with everyone who don't yet own both robots. Sit back and watch the interaction between the RSV2 and his ferocious friend, the Roboraptor in this homemade video. It looks like Robosapien is having more...

As promised, another 'Evolution' pictorial article. The Robopet is next up. As you will see, for the most part, the Robopet went through a pretty smooth birth from ideas, designs, and prototypes to finished product.
