Here is an interesting interview with WowWee's Mark Tilden. Dr. Tilden discusses the progress that has been made since the first Robosapien up through the brand new RS Media. Apparently his house is infested with robots but no harm has come to him or his guests!

A not-so long time ago... in a workshop far, far away...

Robosapien started as a vision, and became a reality. Here's a behind the scenes look at the evolution of the beloved Robosapien, from sketches on paper, to working prototypes, to the final design.

Welcome to my Fairy Godfather Chatterbot introduction. The anticipation was killing me for him to arrive! And, now that he’s here, I would like to introduce you to him!

He is not your typical Fairy Godmother, but rather, a laid back fat Mafia Fairy Godfather that loves to talk. The trigger keys and miscellaneous phrases are...

Can I operate two Robosapiens at the same time?

Robosapien is not a radio control product. It works on infra-red light waves (just like a television controller) - so there is only one option for controlling him. Therefore, if multiple Robosapiens are...

This is the last of four articles about adding a "parasitic" microcontroller to the WowWee Elvis Alive that allows control of this device from an external PC via a serial interface. This article covers the use of MIDI sequencer software (Multitrack Studio) to create animations for the modified Elvis Alive which I am now calling "PC Elvis". Any...

Yup, it's almost that time... only about a week until the ugly reindeer sweaters come out, your Aunt Hermilda pinches your cheek in front of your whole family, and the wrapping paper flies around the living room almost as feverishly as the blizzard rages outside.

I've always admired WowWee Technologies for the creativity and the thought and detail that goes into their products. The newest 'bot to hit the block, RoboMe, encapsulates WowWee's devotion to its fans and borrows some of the best ideas they have had in past robots to combine it all together.

I feel as if RoboMe is the distant upgraded...
