Don't deny it -- you blush a little each time you see that image above. If you're secretly eager to learn all that you can about Femisapien and her gracious ways, Robots Rule has the goods. Expectedly, this gal is said to have \"the most fluid movements of the WowWee family,\" and while we won't emph

While there seems to be less of a chance of complete disaster than the Flamosapien mod pos

It's not exactly coming soon, but WowWee has announced plans for a Robosapien feature film, teaming with Arad Productions with the intention bringing the movie to theaters in 2009. Details are unfortunately pretty scarce at the moment, although it will apparently combine live-action and CGI, and pro

WowWee's robot empire has seen some frighteningly rapid growth since the first Robosapien rolled off the assembly line, but it doesn't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down, with pint-sized versions of a number of the company's bots now making their way into McDonald's Happy Meals. While the

The Robosapien would seem to already be quite capable of defending itself, what with a flamethrower and all, but the folks at Evosapien.com don't seem to be willing to take any chances, upping the otherwise peace-loving bot's arsenal with a BB-shooting \"coilgun\" capable of taking out other toys all

All these videos of Wowwee's quickly-growing lineup of must-have robots has got us quite envious, but still, it's better to see these things caught on tape than never at all, right? One of the firm's first licensed superheros is none other than Spidey himself, and the Spidersapien was able to take a

Although it seems like we've been seeing an awful lot of Wowwee's robotic zoo of late, the kind folks over at TechCast actually gave their Robosapien RS Media a bit more than 15 seconds of YouTube fame, and have thrown down a relatively thorough review on whether this intriguing creature is worth yo

As much personality and flame-throwing capability as your Robosapien might have, there's just no denying that he's a total square compared to some sexy Hollywood personality like Spider-Man or Homer Simpson. That's why we're guessing the new Spidersapien (the original name for Roboquad, if you'll r

And now, back to Wowgadget's comprehensive coverage of all things WowWee. The tricky Robosapien folks chose not to display some of their hottest bots at CES Unveiled -- probably because they won't be released in the US for the forseeable future -- but we managed to sweet talk them into hooking us u

Q4 Technologies, a software company previously known for its gridmagic art package, is working on software to control Wowwee devices. Go-Robo, currently in beta, allows users to write commands for their Robosapien or similar device using either a graphical \"building block\" interface -- for novices -

While the Robosapien, Roboreptile, and basically all of Wowwee's gizmos demand an (understandable) level of respect, the FlyTech Dragonfly (quite literally) takes this \"robotic toy\" gig to another level. While the FCC got its paws on the fluttering animal not too long ago, it now appears that citize

Korean start-up D2E Robotics looks to be aiming to take down WowWee's RoboSapien (ED-209-style) with its upcoming programmable robot, the decidedly less-catchily-named D2V-ZN. Set to retail for close to $750 US when it launches this October, the one-foot-tall programmable mech comes loaded with a bu

We're not entirely sure it jibes with the guide to robot ethics, but there's no denying that the flamethrower add-on is one of the most impressive Robosapien hacks we've ever seen. The folks at Evosapien.com must've sensed our enthusiasm, because they posted a step-by-step tutorial showing how the

If you're looking to delve a little deeper into the world of robotics, but don't exactly have the time or soldering skills to build your own, you'll be glad to know that you'll be able to hack away at your lovable Robosapien RS Media using Lego's Mindstorm NXT system. Thanks to Robosapien designer
