More fun with little robots. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. The folks at WowWee are at it again. Arriving this spring is MiP….a robotic toy that balances on two wheels. Brand Manager Andrew Yanofsky…
“Basically the way you play with him is you pick him up and you turn his right wheel. Every time you turn his right wheel a color will appear on his chest. Each color is a different game. So you can do things like control him with your hands, you can stack objects on a tray table that comes with him. MiP can actually handle payloads to the tune of his own weight which is roughly the same size as a can of coke. So I can actually take a tray table, attach it to MiP, put a can of coke on top of him and then teach him to deliver it across the table.”
MiP will include Bluetooth so it can be controlled from smartphones too. It will sell for about a hundred dollars. There’s more info at WowWee.com. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
