I was recently able to get my mitts on an adorable new White Tiger from the Alive series by WowWee.  All those who have been looking for a well-made, cuddly, interactive toy for their kids, or are looking to add to their collection of stuffed animals, the Alive Cub is a perfect fit.

If you'd like a sneak peek at the elusive beast, and...

Here is an interesting interview with WowWee's Mark Tilden. Dr. Tilden discusses the progress that has been made since the first Robosapien up through the brand new RS Media. Apparently his house is infested with robots but no harm has come to him or his guests!

Wait! Don't throw your batteries away in your remote until you do this check! If this check doesn't work, the problem may be your IR LED.

If you didn't see that in your digital camera, then it just might be the IR LED, a transistor, or the CPU. Follow these simple tests, and we'll go from there...

I am obviously not cut out to be a film director. I obviously don't have the slightest idea about the best light conditions, angles, perspective... pretty much nothing. I did like my choice of music though, so perhaps I can be a little like Tarantino. No? Ok, ok, I give. At any rate, hopefully you'll get a least 1 minute of enjoyment...

Longtime Rovio users are very much aware that the Rovio, while performing quite admirably in well-lit environments, struggles in low light due to the small size of its LED headlight.  Numerous Rovio devotees, many of them community members here, have created hacks and modifications to improve Rovio's lighting system.

However, what if you...

Here's a great introductory video to the Roboreptile. This is a pretty quick, entertaining video. I don't want to give it away so you'll have to watch the vid, but the videographer, who also runs the RobotsRule website, has a funny nickname for his Roboreptile.

As more and more people own an RS Media, an increasing interest has been expressed in using the latest 'bot in the Robosapien line as an educational tool - especially to teach the Java programming language.

When in Program Mode ("Beep, beep, beep"), you can press any of the reflex buttons (R>, S>, or L>), and that sensor will then be entered as a single...

Let me start this off bluntly: I love the RS Media.

When I joined the Wowwee two years ago, part of my job description was (and still is) to demo new products and give feedback to our R&D team. RS Media was the first item I explored. Although I do not have a technical background, I quickly became enamored with this...
