How many of you own a Robosapien?
« on: January 15, 2011, 07:37:03 PM »
I have been thinking about buying a Robosapien and was wondering how many of you own one? To those of you who do own one, are they any fun and are any of the hacks and mods for them worth doing?

I have what's left of one ::)
I found one in a skip when I was walking past last year. When I pulled him out from under the rubble, he was missing an arm, but I thought, what the hell.
They are a veritable goldmine of useful bits. Motors, springs, touch sensors, infra-red, microphone, speaker, LED's - all sorts.
I am currently fitting a servo and a small video camera inside his head, ready to mount on my Robonova-1.  ;D
They are so cheap on eBay now, my advice is get one. Even if you don't like him, you can always cannibalise him ;)

I have way too many according to my wife but what the heck...yes get some they have TONS of tech built into them and are a great source for parts. At present I have..

RoboSapien
3 various Robo dinosaurs
RoboSapien V2
RoboSapien Rs media ( comes with Linux brain,built in 10 watt MP3 player, camera, infrared, sonic etc )
Robo Snake ( not sold in North America )
The four legged guy ( forget the name )
both large and small models
heck I even have RoboSapien the puzzle and RoboSapien stickers
plus others.
Every Robot guy should have at least 1 RoboSapien of some kind.
Did you know that there were over 1 million RoboSapien version 1's sold!!!

Thanks for the link. So far I haven't much luck on winning one on eBay. As usual I keep getting outbid. No biggie. I set a limit and stick with it.
