Congratulations to the RoboCommunity Video Mania Contest Winners!

Back on December 5th, 2007, RoboCommunity announced

RoboCommunity Video Mania!

We asked you to post as many embedded YouTube videos of WowWee robots as you could find. If you were able to find or create a video of a robot doing something fun and wacky, or otherwise significant, we gave you an entry into the contest.

Well, the judges have wrapped things up, and our selected winners are about to be announced!

Drumroll, please...

Runner Up #1 - milw

Milw did some great detective work, and posted some videos of robots featured in WowWee's new lineup. Take a look at the footage!

He'll be enjoying a new WowWee t-shirt!

Video Mania Runner Up #2 - RobosapienV2-4mem8

RobosapienV2-4mem8 posted a video of RoboQuad getting his groove on - it's really fun to watch.

Also, check out his excellent footage of a mod that he's doing - a shoulder-mounted laser and tracking camera. This mod is just too cool - it looks great in the dark. Turn your RSV2 into a mechanized warrior - or just help him point things out!

RoboCommunity Relaunched!

You might have noticed... RoboCommunity has been completely redesigned, and relaunched to bring you all the latest fun and useful features Capable Networks' online community platform has to offer.

From the new private messaging system to a powerful new browse page to a groups feature where you can share common interests to an exciting members page where you meet more members of the community... We certainly hope you enjoy the new features and functionality.

Also, keep in mind that these kinds of major migrations require a bit of time to work through.  So, if you see missing forum posts, or something is in a weird place, just let us know.  We're working through these things to get everything back to 100% as quickly as possible. 

So, take a look around, and give us feedback. We'd love to hear from you. And in the meantim, enjoy the new and improved RoboCommunity!
