I'm a new member, and this is my first article. Undecided

Anyway, here's my question: what can your robot do?

You know, anything you've discovered about it ( no mods or hacks ). Such things can include:

  • secret interactions ( ones NOT mentioned in the instructions)Sealed
  • interaction secrets ( what hapens )Surprised
  • prices and deals (you get this one )Money mouth
  • ANY problems ( I might be able to help )CryYell

And please, no arguments ( corrections are OK - I make them too )

I also welcome you onboard.

Technically, this is your first "thread". An "article" is a different animal, and we have those, too. Perhaps you submitted this as an article, but it got converted to a thread by the admins.

If you haven't already done so, you can find a lot of information about what other people have discovered by doing searches for specific keywords.

For instance, if you wanted to know about what WowWee calls the "interaction" behaviors, you could search on "interaction" as a keyword and get a list of all the threads and articles that mention that.


The more specific your keyword search, the more specific the resulting list will be. 

One nice thing about the result lists from searches is that you can choose to order the list by Relevance, Date, Score, or Last Post.

Score sorting can help bubble well scored threads to the top of the list. A thread's score is calculated from a complex function of who started it, who commented on it, how many people read it, and which direction the wind blows on alternate Tuesdays. Laughing

There's lots of good information out there. It makes a great leaping off point for revisiting old discussions or discovering new information.

Have you guys heard of the I-Robot? Sharper Image or the Discovery Store has it. I don't.

iRobot the company has a bunch of models, the Roomba, Scooba, the Luge gutter cleaner (got get me one of those for sure!), the Create platform... and coming soon, the Rovio competitor ConnectIR! Is that what you meant?

oh and Darth Patrick, he isn't pink and 5 pointed by any chance? I can't believe Lego bought into the SpongeBob franchise!

January 31, 2008 8:38 PM

They sure did! I have the Krusty Krab set and the magnet set. Did you know that combining SpongeBob and Squidward you can make "SquidBob TentaclePants"? Anyway, back to the topic.

SORRY!!    I guess its actually called the I-SOBOT. I would make this a link, but I don't know how to. Try the shop section of Robocommunity --> then click on any robot --> then scroll down on the new page --> then you'll find him. Good luck!      P.S. Here are some pictures: -->  -->  -->     That last one he's doing the splits. Ouch!!

My roboquad attacks my brother.  Because my brother is always calling RQ silly and stupid.  So RQ goes after him as a for legged assasin!

Keep the robotic dreams,

Seems simple enough. I suggest you write about the robots that can do chores.

The Irobot examples are listed earlier in this thread. 

Other than that, Google is your friend. Look it up. Find references. Read about it. Write about it.

Let me type the search for you....
