Designed by a robotics physicist who worked at NASA, the hulking Robosapien looks like a Star Wars
stormtrooper on steroids, with a stark black and white body and massive shoulders and feet. Just press the black power button on its back, and it awakens with a yawn and an "Uh-huh." You control the robot using an elaborate, button-rich remote that looks as though it could run your home theater system. The Robosapien can perform more than 80 actions such as dance, burp, do a karate chop, give a high five, and listen for intruders, and its eyes light up red and blink whenever a command is received. Its also equipped with touch sensors, and it stops when it bumps into walls. If you ever get sick of its act, simply press the Stop button to make it quit. The robot is highly flexible, with joints that go every which way, yet very solidly constructed. Four D batteries for the robot and three AAA batteries for the remote are required. An extensive instruction booklet is included. --Andy Boynton
Think owning a multifunction home robot is the stuff of science fiction? The WowWee Robosapien Remote Control Robot is a full function fast moving robot minion suitable for all your world domination needs. This easy-to-use humanoid is ready for eons of fun right out of the box; there's no complicated setup or need for a computer. Robosapien's 60-plus commands are easily controlled by an ergonomic remote, not some impossible-to-understand logarithms or formulas.
Robosapien is a sophisticated fusion of technology and personality. Loaded with attitude and intelligence, Robosapien is the first robot based on the science of applied biomorphic robotics. With a full range of dynamic motion, interactive sensors and a unique personality, Robosapien is more than a mechanical companion -- he's a multi-functional, thinking, feeling robot with attitude!
Sit back and watch as this 14\" personal robot goes through movements and activities you never thought possible in a home robot, from its hilarious kung-fu motions and \"caveman\" voicing, to shaking hands and picking up objects around the house. Plus, the Robosapien doesn't get around rolling on hidden wheels to approximate walking. It actually walks, and runs for that matter!
