Robosapien is a fusion of technology and personality. Boasting a variety of functions, it has been heralded as one of the most popular biomorphic toy robots in the world.

With a full range of dynamic motion, interactive sensors and a unique personality, Robosapien is more than a mechanical companion — he’s a multi-functional, thinking, feeling robot with attitude!

If you’re not familiar with this popular fellow, you can read more about it here.

Along with its popularity came a variety of new colors and interesting skins.

Here are our Top 3!

1. Homersapien

There’s no denying the popularity and donut-loving brilliance of Homer Simpson. Homersapien’s launch coincided with the launch of The Simpsons Movie in 2007.

 

2. Spidersapien

What’s better than a web-slinging action hero? How about a biomorphic one!

3. Graffitisapien

Created by one of our talented designers (Benny Dongarra), this one-of-a-kind gem’s lovely home is the WowWee office showroom in Montreal, Canada!

Happy Monday friends!

Today, we thought we’d throw it back old school and dig up one of our awesome legacy toys – Roboquad!

Roboquad burst on to the scene in 2007 and is an inquisitive animated robot with unique multi-directional movement capabilities and advanced sensory awareness. Featuring multi-colored flashing lights and techno sound effects, Roboquad is the first true robotic arthropod.

With cool sensory features such as Flinch Response (if an object approaches his scanner very quickly he will react, according to his aggression level) and a Sound Sensor (reacts to sounds and scans for nearest object when disturbed), Roboquad is an incredibly interactive robot.

Check out this 2007 video from CES with Roboquad’s inventor Mark Tilden!

RS Media™ is the perfect fusion of cutting-edge technology and personality modeling software. In effect, RS Media allows you to take total control.

It brings technology to life as it interacts with it’s environment.

The design inspiration for this multi-function robot was to integrate the motion-sensor technology into the helmet while maintaining a visor-like look and feel.

The head-mounted camera and IR vision also had to come together seamlessly and the helmet began taking shape with this in mind.

Take a look at some early concept illustrations. The final robot can be seen in the link above.

File this under the ‘oldie but a goodie’ category.

Two Femisapiens face off in a battle of sabre skill and agility.

Although the engagement rules of fencing did not seem to apply to these two, the outcome was fun (and a tad ridiculous).

This also begs the question; where did those custom fencing masks and sabres come from?!?
