Robosapien has evolved - 2 feet tall, more moves, more attitude, more functions, and more fun! It has an "Advanced Colour Vision System" for object recognition, an infrared radar for avoiding and picking up objects. He has "Targeting Technology" to follow a path you trace out, can talk about himself in English, has changing moods. He is fully programmable. He can even play with other Robosapien toys.

Secondly Robosapien can also be a electronic or PC hobbyists play thing as it is possible to program him but the manual is poorly written to aid you in this venture and it has significant programming limitations. More interesting is the ability to pull him apart and start re-programming him from the inside and add additional electronic accessories. This can be great fun but expensive if you happen to put your soldering iron in the wrong place. Once again there is a lack of good centralised information on his internal structure to help you get started. So as a hobbyist's dream I will give him 3.5 stars; 4 stars if there was more information available.
In conclusion Robasapien is a disappointment as he lacks the level of sophistication and artificial intelligence that may be implicitly inferred by some of the marketing hype.
A week later I took it out of the box, spent 10 mins playing with it, threw away the packaging (which is massive!) and left it in the corner of my room. 1 month later I decide to have a quick play and disaster has struck!
Halfway through the initial self diagnostic it freezes and repeats "I think I have a bad motivator" and refuses to do anything else except repeat that statement! I checked the manual, there is no help section, I check the website there is no help section, I change the batteries and still no success.
I check online and to my horror discover that this fault is so common there are entire websites created about it! An internal gyro is prone to breaking, so many broke in fact that there was a massive recall in the US, but not here in Europe.
I contact WooWee the company that makes the robosapiens and I have still had no reply.
Save yourself some money and wait for the design flaws to be removed
I read the other reviews and was nearly put off from purchasing him, but I think they were maybe expecting alot for their money, he does not walk that fast on carpet but he does walk faster on a hard floor. I would definitely but this again, and am thinking of the next model up!
Hope you find this review helpful.
