Remember that Body Trainer headset unveiled by Sega Toys earlier this year? If not, there's hardly a better time to refresh your memory given that it's coming to US soil via ITAMI. The rebadged FiTrainer comes equipped with a heart sensor and built-in one-liners to keep you going when your muscles

Cross a Segway with a Rolly and Miuro and out pops this A.M.P. soaked in a grey-goo afterbirth of Robotic procreation. The two-wheeled, dancing A.M.P. (Automated Music Personality or Ampbot) from Sega-Hasbro stands 2.4-feet tall and features a MP3 or iPod cradle on its back, stereo speakers, and th

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

ZMP's Miuro may have been doing the whole music-playing, rolling robot thing even before Sony's Rolly stole the spotlight, but it had the slight disadvantage of costing nearly $1,000. The company now looks to be changing that situation, however, with it teaming up with Sega Toys to release a slight

Move over Rolly, there's a cheaper, craplasticer bot ready to stomp out your game. Sega Toys just announced their ¥5,250 ($51) I-Spin dancing robot. Apparently it responds to ambient sounds by rolling around and flipping its ears in time with the beat. After that novelty wears thin, you can dir

Oh sure, we've seen gadgets used as motivational tools before, but Sega Toys is apparently banking on you not being a hothead. Otherwise, you just might fling its Body Trainer headset from your dome as soon as you hear \"please exercise a little bit harder\" over your incessant panting. Nevertheless,

Though we don't believe this to be one of those \"mind-controlled tech toys\" Sega Toys was working on, it's pretty evident that it will give your mind a workout. From what we can tell, the Brain Checker is a standalone gizmo designed to stretch your mental muscles with a myriad puzzles, but most ever

Details are still light on this one, but Sega Toys (makers of freaky robots) and the brain-reading folks at NeuroSky have announced that they've teamed up in an effort to develop what they're only describing as \"mind-controlled tech toys,\" which they say will \"take 'play' to the next level.\" Those

We could think of quite a few things we'd rather be doing than gazing at stars projected on the ceilings of the Engadget HQ, but if your social life hasn't reached that higher plane, or perhaps has so far exceeded ours that planetariums are the hip new thing for your crowd, then by all means run ou

When your pet mouse isn't zooming around the house in his new plane, the tiny rodent Liberace can entertain your family by jamming on Sega Toys' Hello Kitty mini baby grand piano. The miniscule music maker, which weighs in at 3.6 kg and is 18cm high by 25cm wide, features 100 jazz and classical sta

Sega Toys looks to have dialed back the creepiness factor with its latest product: a desktop device filled with sea creatures ready to do your bidding. Dubbed the \"Private Ocean,\" the device packs low res representations of some 100 different critters, which can swim into formation to display the t

Sega Toys has another in a long line of personal robotic pets: the MIO. This deer/dog (deg?) sells for ¥9,240 in October or about $75 whenever it escapes Japan. Like any good robopet, the MIO features big doleful eyes capable of expressing joy, anger, and grief in response to your tender grace o

Animated flowers in the home certainly aren't a new fad, as we've seen talkative ones, printing ones, networked ones, and even petals that douse fires. Sega Toys' latest gizmo takes the electrified flower to another level, as it looks to integrate the bouncy demeanor of the iSmile flower with your m
