A smart, fully programmable and highly agile two-wheeled robot, the Roboni-i is the first entertainment robot to offer unlimited play patterns. The Robonica Roboni-i is also the first robotic gaming platform: a hi-tech, programmable robot with personality and interactive controls featuring ZigBee technology. The user can easily customize all the behavior and game accessories as they wish. And with editable downloadable games, there’s no end to the ingenuity and fun of the Roboni-i.

With the Robonica Roboni-i’s futuristic architecture and space-age silver color, the Roboni-i would be right at home in a science fiction movie. The Robonica Roboni-i features a durable plastic chassis that protects his intricate inner technology. Inside of Roboni-i are 12 infrared sensors, which the robot uses to sense his surroundings, "talk" to other robots and communicate with the included BaseStation. The Robonica Roboni-i also features highly-sensitive touch sensors on his front and back bumpers, allowing him to sense even the slightest physical contact. With a full, 360-degree range of motion, measurements of 8.3 x 6.9 x 6.9 inches and weighing only 4 pounds, the Roboni-i is highly agile.

The controller's LCD screen displays various aspects of the robot's status, such as his level of "happiness," his battery life, current game mode, and so on. The Robonica Roboni-i is loaded with personality. Using the included Command Center program, you can customize the way your Roboni-i reacts to different stimuli. The Command Center program is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It is backed by a 1-year limited warranty.

The Robonica Roboni-i also provides a wide range of single and multiplayer games. Users are also able to create their own games via the game editor. An active Internet community is also a plus. Getting started instructions, USB cable, CD with PC software are included with the Robonica Roboni-i. The Robonica Roboni-i comes with the Roboni-i robot, remote controller, infrared pod, and ball scoop for the convenience of the user.
The Robonica Roboni-i has great user support, especially when it comes to creating and downloading games.

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.
