Joebot is the first WowWee robot that can be controlled by voice commands and will respond to certain key phrases. WowWee’s Joebot is a traditional walking robot, but comes with a new “fast and fluid” motion that should see him zipping around your living room less stiffly than the Robosapien. He can tell jokes, beat box, dance, play a game of Simon Says and even have a fight with you – shoot him with an IR remote control and he’ll enact a little “death” scene. And when he does fall over, he’ll even ask you to help him back up. In Beatbox mode, Joebot plays back up to 200 beats in a row. Joebot can detect obstacles and avoid them on his own.

The WowWee Joebot is like a wacky cartoon character full of jokes and hilarious comments. His eyes and mouth light up when he talks. The artificial intelligence level is very high and he uses the latest technology and algorithms for a whole new level of interactivity. Joebot features joystick hands that allow you to control and program him. IR Sensors allow Joebot to “see” most objects in front of him. The volume control is very good and is automatically adjusted by artificial intelligence. In Patrol Mode Joebot will walk around freely and let you know what he thinks about his surroundings. Joebot entertains you with the help of his hilarious Conversation Demo. With his Dance Demo Joebot will show off his moves with one of his dance routines.

The WowWee Joebot is a walking, talking, interactive buddy, and with more personality than robots before him. Joebot is filled with comedic chatter, kind of like having your own cartoon friend. Joebot takes state-of-the-art consumer robotics to a new place. The character really has some personality and walks more realistically than any previous versions. However, those with a practical streak will have a hard time justifying the cash to buy a robotic friend.

Great Gift For
The WowWee Joebot is perfect for those who are interested in robotics or science and also like to play with robots. This is ideal for the younger generation or teenagers.

Price and Where to Buy
The WowWee Joebot is selling for $99.99 at Amazon.com.
