way back at CES earlier this year, but the folks at RobotsRule recently
got a chance to put the bot through all its paces in advance of its
summer release, and they’ve now churned out a fairly thorough review.
On the whole, they seem to have been mightily impressed by the bot, and
they think it’ll appeal just as much to more DIY-minded folks as it
will to kids, thanks in no small part to its unique wheel base and tilt
sensor-equipped remote control. On the downside, the bot’s sensors were
unable to detect anything on the floor below its chest, and it
apparently had a tendency to occasionally topple over while trying to
climb walls (the ten minutes of pre-recorded audio also seems like it
could get tiring real fast). If that hasn’t made up your mind, you can
check out the review in video form after the break.
