Have Robots speak commands or tips

There are so many controls and commands that you can execute on the Robosapien line of robots, I think it would be great if they could speak tips and commands to you on demand to help you learn to controls.

For example, I push a 'tip' button and the Robosapien could tell me that holding down Shift-2, Shift-3 and the "D" button makes him Burp.  He could cycle through the commands that way. 

Robots that fly?

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?

Programmability/Hackability/API ?

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.
