Smart and fun toys for the holidays: WowWee

Boot Camp feature for Friday, November 13, 2015

Sensors and smart toys for the holidays.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   WowWee is a company that’s been leading the charge when it comes to using tech to make toys more fun.    The line up for this holiday season includes a Miposaur….a robotic dinosaur that can chase a ball…and even play a little soccer.   It can sense motion and be controlled by hand gestures.     And if you’ve been anticipating a car that can drive itself in your driveway before long….you’ll appreciate what WowWee has done with REV….a racing car set with artificial intelligence.  Chief Technology Officer Davin Sufer…

“Not only can you connect to them from your smart device, and battle against a friend connected to the other one, but you can actually set one of them up as an AI, an artificial intelligence, that can battle against you.  So he’s driving the white car, the black car is an AI, no one is driving that car.  It’s autonomously hunting him down.”

Fun?  Absolutely.  You can find REV for under a hundred dollars.  It can handle up to 16 players at a time.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
