The WowWee JoeBot
The WowWee JoeBot is a humanoid robot that can walk, talk, sing and shoot. It makes cheeky remarks and it can play simple games. But you can’t program it and there doesn’t seem to be a hack for it (yet) either.
- Joebot has preprogrammed voice commands.
- His hands function as buttons to invoke dancing, walking or singing behaviour.
- He can also play back beats that you just played for him.
- When walking, he can avoid obstacles.
- By setting joebot in different poses you can program a dance.
Overall Joebot is unable to hold your attention for longer than half an hour. Even as a kids toy it is rather boring. The possibilities to create something or to use your own imagination are extremely limited.
