Robo News Articles

Hello all,

This article describes two methods to customise the way the RS Media graphics look on his LCD.  But due to my very limited (read: "non-existant") graphic artist capabilities, I have only included 3 customised pictures.  So, I tell you how to do the customisation, but there aren't any cool new graphics yet.  If anyone would...

I recorded this demonstration of the Robopanda presented by one of the helpful WowWee folks at CES Unveiled. While this event was only open to the press, it was still quite a task getting a few minutes to do the filming; there were a lot of people who wanted to see the new WowWee bots.

Previously, we dumped the original contents of the Elvis cartridge and constructed a custom cartridge in order to decode the animation script format.  In part one, I presented the theory that was proposed in discussion on the forums.  It turns out that this theory was correct.  I owe a fellow RoboCommunity member, Sevik, a great deal of...

One of my dreams as a kid was to have a movie theater in my room.  I never expected to have a giant 300 inch silver screen, of course, but always wished I could lay down on my bed and watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles right on my ceiling, or project my latest Nintendo game on the wall.

I found Femisapien's red wrist lights didn't quite suit her, so I decided to replace the LEDs with something a little more fashionable.  I decided on pink LEDs, as they are still quite unique, as well as being feminine.

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.

The Roboquad. Cute. And his movement makes him even more so...

Hey there!

Alot of people are having problems with using rechargable batteries in their robots, especially RS Media! Some people are using rechargables that are 1.2 or 1.3 volts.
