This is a simple video that shows off some of the things that Robosapien V2 can do.  The demo is what is built-in to every Robosapien V2 and can be activated by hitting the "D" button on the remote control. 

Some of the things included in the video are movement of the head, arms, and torso as well as laying down on the floor...

Editor's note:

In Part 1 of this incredible series, our fearless hacker RobosapienV2-4mem8 cracks open the Roboquad exoskeleton. Is this alien dissection from Area 51? Nah, but it sure looks like it.

Then in Part 2, the exploration continues -- complete with photo close ups of electronic innards.

This is my first mod for the RoboQuad: a battery monitor. When properly adjusted, it will visually tell you when your batteries are geting low. This mod stays on at all times. The drain on the batteries is very minute; it's around 0.02uA. This mod requires soldering and making a circuit board for the monitor, but it is a very easy...

Well, the big fuss from CES is over now, and I recently got a sell sheet from WowWee on Robquad, and it has some pretty good images of it and the remote. Here is my take of the features listed on the sheet. You may also download a copy of the sell sheet in PDF format.

Pieced together from junk parts, nuts, and bolts, Wrex the Dawg from WowWee Robotics truly has a mind of his own. This wacky mutt is a whole lot of fun, and he's unpredictable, too...

You can enjoy your time with Wrex in so many ways:

First, you could just let him roam on his own, like a real wild pooch. He'll dart...

Here is the next installment of our 'Evolution' articles. This time, we're featuring the hyperactive, ravenous Roboreptile. As you will see, some of the mock-ups don't quite look the eventual product, but always interesting to see what was going through the minds of the designers.

By the way, if you haven't seen them, here are...

Meet the Alive Lion Cub - the very first in a new series of super-realistic animal companions from WowWee!

Many of us, especially those with vivid imaginations, have wanted a wild animal for a pet at some point - but we all know that's not very likely. Wouldn't it be great to have your own pet lion, that responds to your every...

Wrex the Dawg had me laughing hysterically; he's a crazy canine, and a little unpredictable - but he makes a great companion. You see, he's been "hot-wired" from junkyard parts, and who knows what that can do to a pooch!

You can let Wrex roam on his own, just like a real dog. Except, of course, that he might malfunction -...
