My Dream Toy – A Robot Chimp Head

Wow Wee Toys, the makers of the obnoxious-but-cool Robosapien, is coming out with an ultra-realistic robot monkey head.

On the more mind-blowing and unusual side, is the new Wow Wee Robotics Alive Series. These are life-like, animated, remote-controlled robot heads that include stereoscopic hearing so they can track your position and even your distance away. Wow Wee’s first demonstration of this technology is a frighteningly real looking monkey head with a fully articulated face. The real stunner, though, is the expected price: $129. George York, Wow Wee’s chief designer on the project said he’s been working with the company’s divisions in Hong Kong and China to have the robots ready for a 2006 release.
