So we already know the Roboquad can dance, but what else can it do? Here is a presentation of Roboquad's features as explained by WowWee employee, Michelle (no, not our blogger, Michelle C.).

My robot keeps staring at strange objects around the room. What is he looking at?

Your RS2 "sees" using Infra Red (I/R) light, a light too "red" for humans to see. However many appliances, computer screens, TVs, and dimmed lighting put out I/R light which your robot can be attracted to,
