Roboraptor. The very word is unbelievably exciting! Who said dinosaurs were extinct? The 32 inch Roboraptor proves they're back and roaming the earth once again in this advanced fusion of technology and wild individuality.
With his advanced artificial intelligence personality, realistic biomorphic motions, direct control and autonomous behaviours, the age of dinosaurs has truly returned.
40+ pre-programmed functions
Remote control and autonomous "free-range" behaviour modes.
Fluid bi-pedal motion: walking, running and predatory gaits
Realistic body movements: turning head and neck; whipping tail actions
Three distinct Roboraptar moods: hunter, cautious and playful
Autonomous environmental interaction: responds with mood specific behaviours and sounds
Mood dependent behaviour: aggressive/hunting mood; nervous/cautious mood; friendly/playful mood
Multi-sensory: Touch sensors in his tail, chin and tongue; sonic sensors can detect the location of sharp sounds
Infra-red vision system detects objects in his path, or approaching (when he's stationary)
Powerful jaws that play pulling games
"Laser" tracking technology: trace a path with the remote and he'll follow it
Roborapter has visual and sonic guard mode
Responds to commands from Robosapien V2
Auto shut-off function
6 x AA batteries , 3 x AAA batteries required -not included
Dinosaurs used to rule the world. Robots will someday rule the universe. With these two incontrovertible facts in mind, Mark Tilden the former NASA scientist behind Robosapien, has created Roboraptor, a programmable robotic dinosaur that's as intelligent as it is awesome.
The fact is Roboraptor is one astonishing, programmable R/C dinosaur. Indeed he's truly revolutionary (or should that be evolutionary?) and set to become as insanely popular as Robosapien (one of the best selling christmas gifts in the UK last year). He is fully controllable and programmable by radio control but also fully autonomous in free-roam mode.
Unlike a real dinosaur Roboraptor is no bird brain: multi-sensors allow this 32" bipedal beast to see, hear and feel the environment around him. He has multiple touch sensors in his head and tail, while sonic sensors detect sound and direction. He even has three distinct moods: hunter, cautious and playful. Go near his face when he's hunting and he'll behave aggressively; touch him when he's playful and he'll nuzzle your hand.
Possibly the most impressive thing about Roboraptor is the way he walks in an incredibly lifelike predatory manner. Roboraptor can even run and pick objects up with his incredibly powerful jaws, so make sure you hide your pet hamster!
Roboraptor is programmed and controlled via a sleek PlayStation-style joypad. Just like Robosapien the permutations of movement are endless and you'll be creating new sequences for Roboraptor until the cows (or should that be mammoths) come home. Or until a huge radioactive asteroid smashes into our planet with catastrophic consequences.
