Robosapien RS Media
This is the latest and most advanced creation from the mind of Mark Tilden and the researchers at WowWee. The only thing this robot is lacking is a wireless connection to the internet! He has all of the capabilities of the original Robosapien and the V2 without any of the drawbacks.
Various media formats are playable on this walking entertainment system including AVI, MP3, WAV, JPG and even JAR - Java-based games (three such games come pre-installed). You can take photographs with the built-in camera or record sounds through the built-in microphone. RS Media has four personalities built in or you can create and upload your own with the included RS Media Editing Suite.
RS Media has sensors that allow him to detect sounds and from which direction those sounds originate from. There is a tilit sensor that will shout down his other systems to prevent damge if he is knocked over or falls down. Sensors in his claws allow the robot to know whether or not an attempt to pick up an object was sucessful or not. If all of that were not enough, there is a detailed vision system that allows RS to detect objects and color as well as tracking and object avoidance.
In addition to full remote control of all movements through the remote or buttons on his arms, you can program movements in a number of different ways - through the remote or over a USB connection for example.
