Toy Fair provides extensive remote-controlled things. RC Robot, RC automobiles...and odder stuff. I drove a couple of, was shot with a couple of, and ducked while nearly being hit with a couple of. While you will find of course greater than I possibly could ever consume within my eventually on the ground, here were my personal favorite funky robots and RC toys I saw. (For additional toys, take a look at Bridget Carey's journey.)
Hasbro's first Nerf robot is headed to stores this be seduced by $79.99, and it appears as though a spider fused having a dart gun. The six-legged RC robot includes its very own joypad remote, includes a 360-degree rotating turret, and may turn on to 12 darts consecutively as much as 45 ft. All it's missing is really a camera for round-the-corner drone strikes. It's much more of an RC vehicle than the usual true RC Robot kit, but something informs me it will likely be popular...it can be it crawls around and fires foam darts.
I have seen lots of dancing, spinning robots within my time, and to tell the truth, I have become pretty jaded. MiP was something I almost went by until someone pulled me over to have a look...and, really, I came away impressed. The MiP seemed to be seen only at that year's CES, however the little guys were around Toy Fair to bop to music, carry drinks, and race around stunt tracks. Built just like a Segway with arms and eyes, MiP includes a gyroscopic balancing system and could be designed with hands gestures, or controlled by having an iOS/Android phone for additional complex navigation. It comes down out this spring, and occasional costs.
Many people saw this little orb RC spder Robot at CES, however i never did. This is an incredibly cute little semi-transparent gadget that's designed to roll directly on the top of the tablet screen -- or monitor, or perhaps a sheet of paper with hands-attracted lines. Ozobot reads lines and follows them, and changes instructions according to what color the line is: spinning, accelerating or slowing down lower, along with other methods. Ozobot has over 1,000 instructions it may read and perform, and apps that actually work by using it feel include maze games, race tracks, as well as an executive decision-maker style novelty. A complete charge via Micro USB forces 40 minutes of movement. It comes down out later this summer time for approximately $59.99, and could be preordered at Ozobot's Kickstarter page.
