I recently had the privilege to play around with the new Lego 8527 Minstorms robot kit. It was as awesome from the "build it yourself" perspective as the WowWee line from the "out of the box, almost lifelike, fun to play with" perspective. I documented my experience on Techlore, but my question is...
General WowWee Discussion
I heard a rumor that there will be a flying dragonfly in the WowWee product line-up sometime in 2007.
Any truth to that? What will this thing do?
So, I'm envisioning something that will fly around the room via remote control and not run into walls, etc?! How awesome would that be!
Anyone got the dirt?
Someone mentioned that it would be cool if Robosapien could say something like "My battery is running low" or "I don't have enough power to perform that function", and it got me thinking - why couldn't you have the ability to program those functions/event handlers into it yourself? I took a look at the user manual, but it was pretty basic.
It looks like the Roboreptile is out in the states, and RS Media is coming along soon. What else does WowWee have up their sleeves? Anyone?
I honestly have no idea. What exactly is SCOTY, and what does it do?
I love WowWee's robots, but I'm not quite sure I get the interactive chimp head. It seems a little... strange... to me. Does anyone have one, or has anyone seen one in person? What's the appeal?
