Please Note: Unfortunately we are no longer stocking this product, please do not click the 'E-mail me when back in stock' option. For great alternatives, check out the products below! There's something eerily familiar about Robosapien 1 that gives the collywobbles to those of use at gadgetshop HQ who are conversant in these matters. It's not just the seven independent servo motors in this ground-breaking bi-ped robot that give it lifelike movement. Nor the fact that it's fully tactile and responds to objects in its field of vision. It's that Robosapien is, undoubtedly, the shape of things to come. When NASA Mars rover scientist Mark Tilden and his cohort spent over $1 million developing a fully independent, walking, talking robot, they perfected an early form of BEAM technology in the process. BEAM - or Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, Mechanics - is a new branch of robotics that models biological behaviour and seeks to replicate it in hard-wired robots, setting aside conventional (and clumsy) computer control. Tilden's remarkable breakthrough not only renders Robosapien more lifelike, it enables him to perform over 80 complex actions on demand. With an independent right and left, Robosapien is designed to follow six different commands on each side, enabling a huge number of possible movement permutations, from high-fives to kung-fu actions, all governed by a fearsome remote master controller. The future, in no uncertain terms, is in your hands....
Feisty, moody and filled with personality, Robosapien is a humanoid with attitude that comes to life at your command and performs amazing tasks. Using the ergonomic remote control, you can command Robosapien to perform up to 67 pre-programmed functions including pick-up, throw, high-five, whistle, dance and three different karate moves.
Robosapien is fully programmable. He can perform a programmed chain of commands in any combination of moves that you select. For example, you can create your own dance sequence or program him to walk straight, turn left and give your buddy a high five.
The fully articulated Robosapien fluid biomechanical movements and pendulum walking motion makes his movements appear more human than robotic. This attribute separates Robosapien from less sophisticated entertainment robots on the market. Robosapien's impressive flexibility is evident as he walks in two different speeds, dances and easily handles 180 degree turns.
Robosapien comes equipped with two types of three pronged grippers, ribbed for increased traction. He can pick up objects such as cups, socks, pencils and other small light objects.
Sure to keep you on your toes, Robosapien reacts to both touch and sound signals from his environment. His Interactive Reflex System (IRF) uses a total of six sensors strategically located throughout his body to detect obstructions. Sensors in his feet allow him to recognize and avoid obstacles without help, as he moves backwards or forwards with ease. Select one of his sensor programs and Robosapien will respond to a sharp sound or to touch.

When it was received all those years ago, it was a treasured toy, and played with all the time. It walks and speaks a few words, and is operated via a large remote control! Not so technically advanced these days as it was new, but it still delights any young visitors to the household.
It can take a little bit of time to get to grips with old Robo but once in the swing the remote controls become very simple to use and operating Robo becomes a real joy. The experience becomes even better when you start learning to program the little critter putting multiple moves together and also getting him to react to touch and sounds in different ways, this is thanks to noise and touch sensors in the hands and feet. He is a bit pricey I have to be fair but all in all I'd say that Robo is well worth the money and will keep you occupied and coming back again and again. After a while, this little critter stops becoming a toy and becomes a small caveman friend always willing to cheer you up or make you laugh, your friends will also be impressed and children will be mesmerised by it and at the end of the night you can turn him off and listen to him snore.
This is a fantastic bit of kit, the only problem I did have with Robo was the packaging which took me an age to get off, does also drain batteries pretty rapidly so make sure you stock up. All in all I wouldn't be without Robo or Gruber as I've named mine!
Everyone in the family thinks its fabulous too.
Its a must get toy/machine
