After much searching, I finally located a RoboBoa more by chance than by diligent effort. A friend of mine, who was aware of my obsession with all things Wow Wee, asked me one day out of the blue, what is a RoboBoa?

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...

We got a chance to snap a few quick pictures at WowWee's booth at the CES Unveiled press event today (Sat 6 Jan 2007). Out of the 3 products they were allowed to bring in, I ignored the RS Media, as you RoboCommunity folks have seen many of those. Here are the other 2.
