WOWWEE ROBOTICS INTRODUCES ROBOREPTILE
A COMBINATION OF ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND JAW-DROPPING ROBOTIC ANIMATION THAT BRINGS A COLD BLOODED CREATURE TO LIFE

Equipped With Advanced Sensor Technology and a Fiery Personality, Roboreptile is The Fastest Moving Robot To Date

NEW YORK, NY – October 4, 2006 – WowWee Robotics™, the #1 consumer entertainment robotics company, sets loose the ultimate herpetological species - Roboreptile™. A highly interactive, seeing and hearing cyber-reptilian, Roboreptile is one of the most sophisticated, fast and animated creatures to come out of the WowWee workshop. WowWee is best known for manufacturing technologically advanced blockbuster hits such as Roboraptor™, Robopet™, Robosapien™ and Robosapien V2™.

With his low menacing stride and striking animations Roboreptile is an impressive mix of great mobility, multi-sensory technology and a fiery personality. Watch as this 2¼ feet long adventurous beast awakens with a roar, whips his long tail and springs into action.

Equipped with a 28 function remote, Roboreptile has direct control functions; free roam, program and guard mode capabilities. Incorporating a complex array of sensors and advanced artificial intelligence, this futuristic reptile achieves new levels of awareness. Roboreptile's acute vision, touch and stereo sound sensors allow him to roam his environment autonomously and avoid obstacles, and make him a formidable protector when in guard mode.

With his highly flexible neck, Roboreptile will scan his environment with Infrared Vision Sensors for any "prey". His vision sensors enable him to detect movement and avoid obstacles. Roboreptile is also equipped with a touch sensor on his back, which allows him to respond to human interaction by performing a short animation. Roboreptile relies on his sharp sonic sensors, located on either side of his head, just behind the jaw. The sonic sensors enable him to detect sharp, loud sounds such as a clap. When he hears a sound he will turn and run towards it.

Roboreptile's realistic biomorphic movements and cutting edge dynamics will fool your senses into believing that you are looking at the real thing. This impressive technology enables Roboreptile to cycle through four different gaits. He has the ability to run and walk on all four feet then switch to a bipedal mode and attack on his two hind feet. With the press of a button, Roboreptile will jump, and he turns on a dime to surprise his adversaries. His cool tail whipping action will defend him against any enemy.

Once powered on, Roboreptile's default state is hungry, aggressive and active! Using his keen senses, he will start to explore his environment, attacking, roaring or moving away from anything he sees or hears. Approach with caution as this reptile knows how to bite. Activate the "Feed" button on the controller and he will track down the food signal. Once his appetite is satisfied, Roboreptile becomes a bit more passive and lethargic; this is the time to tame your beast by placing his hood over his eyes. While hooded, Roboreptile will become docile and subdued; remove the hood and you better stay on your toes.

Using the direct control function, you can take command of Roboreptile. Have him perform multiple realistic actions such as snapping, running, jumping and whipping his tail. Enter the Program Mode, and program Roboreptile to perform a series of 20 different movements or animations.

Place Roboreptile in guard mode, and he will protect your area from unwanted visitors. Standing on his hind legs, Roboreptile's vision sensors and sonic sensors keep him alert. He will respond to a sound or movement by either letting out a big roar, or performing a program that you entered.

Easy to use, Roboreptile is fully functional right out of the box, no assembly required. Equipped with volume control and a demo mode, all functions are handled by an easy-to-use remote control. With six AA batteries (not included) for the Roboreptile and three AA batteries (not included) for the remote you can enjoy continuous entertainment.

Roboreptile (ages 8 years and up) will be available nationwide this fall for an approximate retail price of $120.
