WowWee Tri-Bot Review (Page 3 of 5)
Now, you have a few more rubber bands that must be removed, these are hard to see at first, but when you spot them you can snip them off.
Also remove the neck support as well as shown here.
Powering Up Tri-Bot For The First Time
Now that we have him out of the box, let's add his batteries. First, install the remote's batteries; you can do this by removing the back battery cover and installing 3 AAA batteries.
Re-install the cover and press any button on the remote to ensure that the LED light comes on.
Next, let’s install the batteries into Tri-Bot. Lay him on his back, as the pickup handle and the back wheel will support him up. Unscrew the battery plate as you did with the remote, and install your 8 x AA batteries as shown below.
Re-install the battery plate and set him on his wheels. Now the fun part: turning on your Tri-Bot! To turn him on, there is a black button behind his back omni-wheel, press this button down and he will pick a random phrase to say or move each time you turn him on.
To get started with him right away, try the "Demo" button on the remote. Also feel free to move his arms and waist in the position you want. You will hear a clicking noise when these items are moved, which is completely normal, so don't worry!
The best way to enjoy the demo is by placing him in a wide open space so he has freedom to move about. Also keep in mind that when he is in his demo mode, his sensors are disabled.
