Product Description

Product Description

Wowwee Roboraptor

Amazon.com

Evidence that the robotic dinosaur revolution is spreading, this Roboraptor comes fully assembled and ready to roam the earth with his robotic dinosaur cousins. He has movable arms, a swiveling head, a sweeping tail, and a chomping jaw full of pointy teeth. Measuring 32 inches from nose to tail, the Roboraptor is a big enough to intimidate any smaller predator that may come along. While this raptor hasn’t yet developed his full hunting skills, he’s still a lot of fun and comes with over 40 preprogrammed functions, three distinct moods, and the ability to detect things in its path with infrared vision. He also comes equipped with automatic shutoff and a demo mode. Roboraptor is steady on his feet, but works best on smooth, hard surfaces. --Heather Lyndon

He only liked the guard mode.

It has trouble walking on most carpets and even some hard floors.
Soujiro Seta
These are very expensive "robotic toys".

First of all, I should make it clear that I am definitely a nerd, and have had a passion for all things robotics since about the age of 10. My home office/den is full of robotic toys and half completed construction projects. When a new robot, or robot toy, hits the market rush out to see it in action, and if it looks halfway decent, then it's going to come home with me - no question. Of course, after a month or two it earns a place of honor and regular use, or it will end up gathering dust on the shelf.

I'm very happy to say that the Roboraptor has already proved itself to be worthy of a place near the top of my robot collection. It was a ton of fun right out of the box - though getting it out of the box was a major challenge. My wife and I popped in the batteries, put the Roboraptor down on the floor, and immediately started having fun. It was the first time, in a long time, when we actually turned off the television and played with a toy together for a couple of hours.

The next morning (Saturday) we set Roboraptor loose in roaming mode to see how our dogs would react to it. It turned out to be a perfect test of what the toy is capable of. As our dogs moved around, barked, and tried to attack the Roboraptor, it would sense their movement, and hear their barks. There is no question that our dogs really believe that the Roboraptor is another animal.

That afternoon we let it roam around upstairs and videotaped it exploring the rooms, poking into the corners, sniffing everything, and getting into a fight with a metal coat rack. We laughed so hard, and enjoyed it so much that we had to share the videos with our friends on our "Robot's Dreams" blog.

Why were we so successful, when other people have had negative experiences with the Roboraptor.

This is a review of the Roboraptor in two parts. The first part (below) was written by the purchaser and owner, my 8-year-old son Robin. The second part (below that) was written by me, Jack Holcomb. Since we used both the Amazon and Radio Shack reviews while we were researching this toy, we're posting this review to both forums.

Robo Rocker

by Robin Holcomb

I love my Robo Raptor. My favorite part about the Robo Raptor is the Roam mode, which means that it moves on its own. It's cool because it's kind of like a real cyborg animal. I like to do fights using the remote control with other toys, like my giant robot Mars Super Fighter. I would like to buy some army men for it to munch on.

I think the good reviews were completely right and the ones that say "this is just a piece of junk" were completely wrong.

OK, so that's Robin's take on it. I want to add a few details to what he said.

Robin first became aware of the Roboraptor when he saw it at Toys R Us, over a year ago. For one birthday, one Christmas, and another birthday, it was the first item on his want list. Given the expense and our family's previous bad experiences with expensive remote control robots (they didn't work as advertised, they were played with for an hour then forgotten until yard sale time), Robin's mother and I weren't inclined to go that way again. We explained this to Robin, but he kept asking for it. Finally we told him before his most recent birthday that if he saved all of the birthday money he'd be getting from extended family, he would almost certainly be able to afford it. So that's what he did.

The Roboraptor has been hailed as the toy of the year 2005 and the "must have" item for christmas lists. The Roboraptor is very unique and has an initial "cool" factor than lasts for about a week. Only after that initial phase has passed can the real value of the toy be judged. It seems the roboraptor holds it own in the ever expanding realm of robotic toys (Aibo, Robosapien 1 and 2, etc.) Although not as smart or nearly as sophisticated as the $2000 Aibo, it does have one outstanding feature that is amiss in every other toy: Its a dinosaur! Anyone who is a dino enthusiast will probably find having a robotic dinosaur the ultimate in dino toys. And for everyone else, this dino still has many qualities that are worth checking out.

I liked the forward movement of the Roboraptor. I do have very flat carpet so it is able to move rather quickly (especially in the third speed mode). The turning from left to right and vice versa is a bit awkward looking, but its comical since it makes it waddle like a duck. The ability to walk back is a plus since I sometimes find it attacking corners and other dead ends.

The movement of the head and tail are very realistic especially when the raptor is plodding along. The legs do bend or pivot much and seem very limited in range of motion. This is the major flaw in terms of its ability to move but for $99, you can't expect too much can you?

The Roboraptor makes a plethora of sounds that range from happy purring to snarling anger. Perhaps there should be a mute button to disable the sounds when you need silence.

The three "personality" modes work well and it's not hard to discern the differences between the three.
