After finding one of these at a thrift store (sans remote, of course!) a friend of mine presented me with another (in much better condition) with a remote. Both seem to be in pretty good working order, although the chrome finish on my first spider-bot is wearing thin on top.
These early WowWee entries into the robot world, are pretty cool little guys. They scurry pretty well in three out of four directions - unfortunately, there isn't a reverse function (although that appears to be remedied by applying this hack - I haven't tried it yet). There are two speeds and two "spider" sounds. Finally, there is a sound detection mode. As with all of WowWee's Robo line, you can program a sequence of functions for your robot to perform.
