"Alive" Chimpanze Animatronic Head

Posted 23 Oct 2005 at 04:33 UTC by The Swirling Brain Share This

WowWee has a new Animatronic Monkey Head for sale for $149.95! This erie creation can see, hear and feel. It can interact intelligently with you, your family, your guests...and with baffled strangers. His red eyes track movements using infrared "radar" vision; his ears have stereoscopic sound sensors; his skin reacts to contact with touch sensors all around. He also has "vocal chords" and realistically mimics the authentic sounds of a live chimp and can thereby reflect his emotions. The "natural" autonomous mode of "Alive" Chimpanzee can be overridden by a wireless controller. "Guard" mode allows you to preset a series of actions and vocalizations and waits for anything to trip his sensors for it to go off on some unsuspecting victim! Pause for a moment and reflect on what awesome childish things you could do with this monkey head!

I don't know that I like the idea of a decapitated chimpanzee head still acting alive.

But, if it looks anything at all like a scary cyborg head underneath the rubber skin, the addition of some glowing red eyes would make an awesome addition to ANY lab bench.

Anybody in seeing thus, have a flashback to an Indiana Jones movie, Temple of Doom, where a feast was served? The desert being "chilled monkey brains".

A chimp is not a monkey.
