Product Description

Product Description

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!

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. It’s 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

Getting this robot out of the box is a job in itself. Have scissors handy and be prepared to do a lot of cutting and tearing. Also have a few screwdrivers around, because you need to unscrew the battery compartments to open them. Since I didn't know all this, it took me more than 20 minutes to wrestle the robot out of its packaging (which got fairly mangled despite my best efforts to be careful), find an appropriate screwdriver, and finally get things operating.

About the operation: not bad. The robot can bend its body well, all things considered, and the range of movement is pretty good. It did have a bit of trouble moving backwards and forwards on my carpeted floor (low-pile; NOT shag) and as for turning right or left, the efforts were painful to watch. The robot exerted a lot of energy but could only move in little hitches, and it took many labored seconds to fully turn to the right. It did do much better when on the very smooth kitchen floor.

Best functions: the karate chops, complete with sound effects; the dance program; "listen" program; wolf whistle; high five; and the arm movements.

Most frustrating: trying to get the robot to pick up items. They must be VERY carefully placed, and also just the right size and height. They also can't be very heavy at all. The robot could pick up a pencil when I held it up off the ground, but the pencil then slipped through its hand. It was able to grasp a small toy, but could not pick it up because even that light weight was too much. The arms are NOT very strong. For instance, if you command the robot to raise its arm, and then place your hand over the arm while exerting only a small amount of pressure, the arm will stop moving pretty quickly. It has little power.

I love this robot, in fact I bought two regular Robosapiens and one mini Robosapien. It has a ton of personality, great sounds, and most importantly, it's funny as hell. There are over 67 different moves it can make. It actually walks and turns quite well, and runs for a long time on one set of batteries, which much longer than other robot toys I have.

In addition, there are tons of modifications out there that you can try, to enhance the Robot. Just search Google or Amazon's A9 for "Robosapien Hacks". There are also great free programs that you can use to greatly extend the "play life" of this little guy.

My personal favorite is a free open source program on SourceForge that let's you control him with your voice, and easily create complex scripts to make him do all sorts of wonderful thing. It's great for impressing your friends or making your own robot movies. Unfortunately you need a Windows computer and an infrared transmitter to run the program, but you can get the transmitter for cheap and most of us already have a Windows computer.

Just go to SourceForge and search for "Robosapien". It's called the Robosapien Dance Machine.

As the mom of a young boy we have bought many, many robots. This one was the BEST! There are so many things that it can do. It dances, picks up items, walk, etc... Even my 8 year old son found it easy to work. However, i wouldn't buy it for someone younger than 8. Need to be able to learn remote and has small parts.

In the true world of robotics excluding hollywood; our technology is that of a child or toddler and we have a long way to go in the area of robotics helping human kind. SONY; and HONDA are making incredible discoveries in the evolution of the robot and interaction with mankind. People have to separate hollywood bots to the real, miracle of the advances of robotics.

This ROBOSAPIEN ROBOT is by far, the most spectacular I have seen available to the public for a very fair price. I have bought less valuble robots that broke in a month or didn't do what they had promised in the first day of use. I imagine, they have named him ROBOSAPIEN: one because of its humanistic behaviors, comical fun, but also the cavemen talk is exactly where we are in the field of ROBOTS. This has been an incredibly intertaining and unique toy that gets laughs and all the neighborhood's attention when He is out having fun with the other kids. His crude behavior, is funny and not at all offensive; even to older groups. He is more amazing to watch.

There is complaint that he does not remember what you have programmed to do once you shut him off; but that is the learning part of it and to keep my son entertained. While he can belch or fart one day with a clap; the next day he will give you a dance or kung fu move when you clap. Extraordinarily and uniquely entertaining to all ages, he has more than exceeded my child's expectations, as he has dreamed and saved for him for over six months. He has not at all been disapointed and if you have a "techy" child; you know how bored they can become and before you know it they are taking them apart to see how all thier mechanisms robots. His motions are very fluid contrary to the other review, all I can say is either he had a defective unit or expected much too much in the area of robotics and doesn't know at all how far we have come, from RAD; commando bot; emiglio. This Robot is absolutely amazing!!

If your thinking of buying this product, then I urge you to buy it now. This robot is a great toy for everybody. It is very entertaining. This toy has 4 sensors, right side sensor, left side sensor, sound sensor, master program. The robot can therefore have reflexes. For example if Robosapien's right foot bums into a wall, you may have pragrammed to autimatically back up. Whats amazing is that u can link together 84 moves in one program. The sound sensor is quite cool aswell. I clap, and robosapien throw my dirty laundry at me. I garentee your child will never become tired of the endless programs you can make. Robosapien has very fluid motions for its low price. overall this is an oppertunitie you wont want to miss.
