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.

You may be surprised to hear me say that, given that the Bat only has one control (speed/height) and is aimed towards a younger audience. That being said, I really enjoyed...

At the Consumer Electronics show in 2006, Wowwee introduced the Alive Chimpanzee. The chimp completely mimics the look, feel, motions, and sounds of a real chimpanzee. The skin alone took over a year to develop.  The big question is - what to do with it? Why interview it of course

For part 2 you'll need the following;
