Top Customer Reviews
- This is a VERY cool toy for all ages! Meccanoid does so many neat things that everyone adores. He dances, he exercises, he tells jokes, he walks hand in hand with you. All around very neat little dude.
- The robot was an excellent project for my son and I to complete together. I highly recommend doing this with your child.
- Time consuming to build with many, MANY pieces.
- The instruction guide is lacking. The pictures are pretty good to follow along with, but the pieces are not labeled. It was hard to know which screws were 12mm and which were 14mm. In the end, we did find we were wrong on a few occasions.
- The robot seems to have some features that we aren't aware how they operate? There is a "drone" mode, but we aren't sure why.
The project took about 8-9 hours for us to complete. I also made the mistake of not reading the fine print, so when the grand finale time came, I did not have any C batteries. However, after the dash to the store, we were able to complete our Meccanoid. I will gladly attest to it being well worth the effort we put into it. The smile on my sons face after realizing he just built a real robot = priceless!
So as you can see by the images, many organized pieces well placed in the box and packaged extremely well. We were organized and emptied all the pieces out and all the screws and bolts as well on to one area. This helps in the construction. You will need time to do this but all the neccessary tools are included to help in construction.
From start to finish it took us nearly seven hours to complete and we now have a two foot Robot! I must say the instructions are very well illustrated in the included manual and that you should note the tones, color and directions indicated when assembling this kit. There were a few mistakes where we did not notice the color of the wire and we had to disassemble the section and start over. Everything is easy to assemble but given so many parts, it does take a while. The parts are well built, as this is not a cheap kit. Parts are of a high quality plastic and very solid, as is the hardware. Please do not forget that you will need four C/LR14 batteries which we are using the Duracell Quantum Alkalines for more durability. So far, one week of regular use without changing them.
Once we had it assembled and connected it was time to turn Mr. MeccaNoid on! My 10 year old decided it was his Robot and trained it with his voice with ease.. The Voice Recognition was easy for him to use and master the commands. I must say the jokes programmed into the system, well how do I put it nicely... needs a real writer! :) The movements are very smooth from the included motors, and I do recommend placing it on a hard surface and not a carpet as we learned quite quickly. The speaker is easily adjusted and is clear for all the sounds, noises, speaches and bad jokes!
Of course my kids who all have an iPad and/or iPhone, noticed that this can be synced with an App from the AppStore and of course I had to download it to all their devices. Syncing was a breeze, with no issues. All of us including myself enjoyed turns being able to control Mr. MeccaNoid using the contols that the App allows. Included in the APP is the LIM or Learning Intelligent Movemment where we were able to record via the app movement and sounds. Another great feature we enjoyed is the ability to use the camera on the iPhone and iPad and capture motion where Mr. Meccanoid will mimic the movements you do as well!
One item I must note is that I did not understand why my son said that we could make a dinosaur from this same kit but we were not able to find directions to do this! It has been over a week now and now our seven year old plays with it every night after school. It was great being able to spend this much time together builiding the Meccano MeccaNoid G15 Personal Robot with the kids. The enjoyment that they are having with this is priceless, with many more hours to come.
Please note thanks to BzzAgent I received the Meccano MeccaNoid G15 Personal Robot in exchange for a review and each opinion is my own and is not influenced in any way by any party but myself.
This thing has amazing capabilities: voice recognition, easy programmability, movements, quite interesting commentary, dancing and kung-fu movements, etc. The app is a nice addition. Now if we could only figure out how to take advantage of those capabilities ....
I have two complaints: 1) they tout the ability to build a dinosaur version, which I'd really like to do. But there's no information about how. I contacted customer support and was told that they're working on a video; that may be okay, but it's a mean tease to show the dinosaur in all the ads and tell us we can build it, and have that turn out to be untrue. 2) I cannot find decent instructions for taking advantage of the capabilities, not even on their web site.
For example, the robot has a Drone mode, but no explanation as to what that even means or how to use it. Even simple things are not explained (even on their web site) like the fact that you can tell the robot to "Go to sleep", but apparently there's no "Wake up" command or instructions on how to do that. What value does a sleep command have without a wake up command? There's a button and lots of connections on the back, but no information about them. Information on the web site basically says "coming soon" but doesn't contain explanations. If this were a brand new item, that might make sense, but this thing has been out for 9+ months and they recently revealed a bigger (and twice as expensive) version. It's time for some instructions!
So: this is a great device for kids and for parents/grandparents to enjoy with their kids, but we need more information/explanation to take advantage of something that costs a lot and takes a while to build!
