Major Toy Robot Invasion coming this Fall

A new generation of toy robots is set to invade homes this fall. WowWee pioneered toy robots with the Robosapien back in 2004. Now a whole new generation of toy robots is offered by several companies.

WowWee's new line of robots is not at the cutting edge for this fall. At the CES 2007 the company announced the RoboQuad, RoboBoa and RoboPanda. Compared to what the competition has to offer the look rather lame. The hottest contender for taking home the robot toy of Holiday season 2007 is the PLEO baby Dino robotic life form from Ugobe. Pleo will sell for $349 and start shipping in Mid-October. When you get PLEO it is a one week old Camarasaurus that will evolve over time. If that is not cool, what is? PLEO makes heart breaking noises too. You have to love him.
More details about Pleo can be found here.

In the Humaniod robot category the Tomy i-SOBOT will set new standards. The world's smallest humanoid robot features 200 action patterns including Hula dancing and air guitar playing. The tiny fellow will sell for $245 starting in October in Japan. No release date for the US or Europe has been given yet. More details about i-Sobot.

French Meccano (US label: Erektor) will release a robot kit dubbed Spyke in Fall.
Spyke features a Wi-Fi connection and integrated camera, microphone and speaker. Spyke can be used as a VOIP phone and webcam and is compatible with Skype's latest VoIP software - version 3.0 (PC). It is also playing MP3 music files.
The Spyke robot kit allows you to build different looking robots.
The release of Spyke is in September for Europe and October for the US. Pricing is supposed to be approximately 270 USD in the US and 250 € in Europe. More details about Spyke.

Hasbro will release the futuristic styled Mio Pup dog robot. It can walk and play music. The low-cost toy will sell for $48.87 starting October 1st. More details on Amazon.com.

I am not sure if I forgot a toy robot that will come on the market this Fall. If you know about a cool robot I omitted in this report, please email me.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
