The buzz on the street for the CES 2007 show is that WowWee will definetly be demonstrating the the Flytech Dragonfly, the flying robot that flaps its wings, and may also show the mysterious Robosapien V3!

Check out the cool new video of WowWee's flying insect robot, the Flytech Dragonfly (see bottom of the page). This thing is amazing since it flaps its wings to fly and does not use propellers for thrust, only a tiny one in the tail for trim.

FYI, the Discovery Store has a Mindstorms Nxt Coupon that will save you $20 USD off the kit price. I believe this coupon is only good for U.S. and Canada though.

During the month of November, the top robot news reporter can win a free Discovery Roboreptile. The contest begins late tomorrow so visit Roboreporter today and start submitting now.

The Robosapien RS Media robot from WowWee Toys has just launched but only in UK based department store Debenham's. It will begin wider distribution after October 21. It does indeed run an embedded form of Linux. However, some of the software that is used to customize the robot runs only on PC's running Windows XP.

It looks like the Robosapien RS Media, the next version of the Robosapien after the current V2, will have 50 MB of onboard memory for videos. It should be fun to stuff some "talkie" MPEG's on it and run it around the house!

I'll have some more information on it on the EvoSapien site soon.

Hey all. Now that the WowWee's Roboreptile has been released I'll be blogging about it on my new Roboreptile Review blog. It's not available in the USA yet but should be soon.

Interesting note about the Pleo. It will have a software SDK so that programmer types can create new personalities for it and download them to the built-in SD card. I can't wait to give that a spin! More info is available on my blog for the Pleo. Visit the Pleo forum to talk about this and other Pleo related topics.

For those of you like myself who are anxiously awaiting the Pleo dinosaur robot, you should know that the release date has been pushed back from Q3 of this year to Q4. More info is available on my blog for the Pleo. Visit the Pleo forum to talk about this and other Pleo related topics.

I've decided to create a whole new forum for the UGoBe Pleo instead of just a sub-forum so please vist my new Pleo forum if you have questions. My blog on the Pleo is now updated too.
