Fun at first, but gets boring!!!!!!!,
This review is from: Robosapien Multi Speed Fast Dynamic Walking/ Running and Turning Robot (Toy)
I saw Robosapien in a charity shop for 10 quid and snapped it up as it retails at 30. I have always wanted a Robosapien v2 instead, but thought at this price I might as well get the v1 while I can. Unfortunately the manual wasn't with it so I went on the wowwee website where I could read the instructions.
Heres a list of things both good and bad he can do:
*Walking: walking is good. It walks well on our rugs (They are thin) and on our wooden floor it is good. Though when its battery is getting low, sometimes it will walk very slowly.
*Batteries: Batteries last quite a long time, which is good because he takes 4 D batteries and 3 AAA. In fact I've had him at least 3 and a half
weeks and he's still going strong on the same batteries.
*Functions: He has a lot of functions, over 60 to be precise, which include: Burping, 3 different karate actions, dancing, 3 demos, arm movements, kicking (I still haven't worked out how to do it), roaring, programing steps that he repeats and stores in his touch sensors, whistle,
picking up, throwing and more!!!
*Arm movements: His arm movements are limited. Sadly all you do to move his arms is press a button unlike the v2 where you have a joy stick and you can actually be fully in control of his them.
*He can't hear sounds-only when he is in listen mode where a tap to his body or a noise brings him to his normal mode
*He can't see things and he only talks caveman which you can't understand
*I find he gets quite boring after a while and I just returned to using my Roboraptor (another wowwee robot which I have also reviewed)
*Controls: Controls a easy to use. I didn't have the manual so I don't know how to make him kick and I don't know what sonic or execute buttons do. But overall you get used to the controls after about 30 to 40 mins.
*He does not have Free roam or any of the quite hi-tech stuff. Though he does have IR Sensors so if you have another wowwee robot and you have the roboremote you can copy a function from v1 onto the roboremote and use it with other wowwee robos. I do not know if that is exactly what the roboremote does but check out [...] for more information.
So all in all he's a cool robot but gets quite boring after a while.
But I would get Robosapien v2 for just 11 pound more, who has many,
many more functions and actually speaks English!!! So there you have it
Robosapien a fusion of technology and personality!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
