Today’s robots may be considered advanced in terms of what they can do. Some have such technology and still are considered as toys. That is how far robotic technology has gone so far. Toy robots today are not just simply simple toys like before. You have one such as the Gesture Controlled Gyrobot than can provide kids young and old some bit if fascinating fun.
The Gesture Controlled Gyrobot is a unique robot because it balances on two wheels. Looking at it for the first time and you would think that it will fall down. But the built-in gyroscope keeps the small robot upright all the time. This is not the only feature that makes this robot interesting.
The Gesture Controlled Gyrobot also comes with infrared sensors that enable the robot to respond to a user’s movements. Putting your palm in front of the light sensor will enable you to control the robots direction. In autonomous mode, the robot is able to maneuver through obstacles easily.
The Gesture Controlled Gyrobot also comes with a feature that will enable it to mimic up to 50 movements that the robot will repeat whenever you clap. Users can also download a free app that will allow them to program the robot’s route or guide it with the on-screen buttons. Users can also attach a tray into the robot to enable it to carry objects as heavy as a soda can. It also comes equipped with artificial intelligence that will allow it to react in different ways. The Gesture Controlled Gyrobot is ideal for kids from 8 years old and above. It is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $130.
