Toy Fair 2013: Robots Rock!

 I remember the first time I saw Cubelets.  David Wells who is frequently quoted here, had sent me a link.  Cubelets uses principles of biomimicry to program the robots actions. (sound sensitive, light sensitive, heat sensitive, etc..)

WHAT: Robots Are Better Than Ever in 2013
Curious About:  Cubelets, Sphero, Romo

I am curious to see what Romotive can do.  Can it turn itself into a dog and eat my kid's homework.

I think this is so neat.. Who ever thought a robotic ball could even useful or fun but it so is.  Because the shape is a sphere, in a way, I can see that the possibilities for Sphero are limitless.  Sphero will also be coming out with more educational apps later this year but I think just playing around with the Sphero is educational in itself.  There is nothing else like it!

This is the robot that really encourages programming and planning... That's what I have heard lfrp, other parents about this robot by SmartLab
Start saving.. NOW!  LEGO Mindstorms EV3- due late this year.
This robot is so awesome, it doesn't even require electricity.  From HQ Kites and Designs. (Sleddy and Air Glider)

Sorry So Sloppy Note: To bring you as many images as possible, I've decided to skip writing estimated availability dates and prices.  I'd feel awful if I made a mistake.  If you are curious about something, send me a message or leave a comment here.  Also, look through the company website as well since some products are already available.  Sorry So Sloppy. Hope you understand!
