Humanoid Robot Kits

Humanoid Robot Kits

Humanoid robots can be a lot more complex than what you'll see out of the Robosapien down at your local Best Buy. With the KONDO KHR-1 Robot Kit ($1100), for instance, you do the programming and controls, and the robot features 17 adjustable joints, and can do things like back flips and cartwheels. The KONDO KHR-2HV Kit ($1000) is the upgraded version of the KHR-1, and is faster, lighter, and features more controls, gears, servos, tricks, and skills than its predecessor. The Robovie-M V3 Robot Kit ($2700) has 22 joint angular sensors, and is capable of movements such as throws, punches, handstands, and playing soccer. It also automatically pushes itself upright after a fall, which is more than we can say for most of our drinking buddies.

  • Tyco Radio Controlled NSECT

    Not all R/C toys have to be vehicles. The Tyco R/C N.S.E.C.T. ($100) is a radio-controlled bug that features eyes the change color based on what "mode" the toy is in, and a pincher-like claw in front that can grab items. The best part, though, is the "missile launcher" in the back that holds six foam missiles that can travel up
    to 20 feet — far enough to keep your pets,
    kids, or yourself entertained for hours.

  • Zoltar

    Big is an awesome movie. We'd take Tom Hanks in Big than Tom Hanks in Forest Gump, Cast Away, or Saving Private Ryan any day. And if you're a fan of Big too, then you no doubt recognize Zoltar ($9,000). The classic animatronic fortune teller lives in an oak cabinet that stands at 6 1/2' tall, and senses your presence and invites you to approach him. After you insert a quarter, Zoltar checks his crystal ball and provides one of 16 different spoken fortunes and dispenses one of 23 different printed fortunes on a paper card. Just be careful what you wish for.
