Chihuahua and a Robot

Written by Suzanne on December 28, 2008

The kiddo received a very cool techno friend for Christmas. She named her Violet.

Violet is a Femisapien robot from Wowwee, She can strike a pose, dance, do her little turn on the catwalk and be a back-up singer to the kiddo’s performances. She’s programmable, responds to touch, sound, and our Chihuahua likes licking her joystick hands.

Violet’s prototype worked side by side with Christina Aguilera in her video Keeps Gettin’ Better.

After seeing Spielberg’s A.I. movie I have always been a bit hesitant about robots. You have to admit artificial intelligence can be a bit scary especially when trying to duplicate humans. Violet is more toy-like though and although she has a sassy strut and a great waist swivel I’m not in fear of her moving in on my husband anytime soon. I need a Maidasapien that does windows and cleans bathrooms.

    Hurray for Robots!
    Looks like a cool toy, though I wouldn’t be able to stop myself from replacing her head with a webcam and write a program to make her move about on her own and create a webpage to track her, then let her loose in the wild. Violet is thanking her lucky stars about now…

    Happy New Year Suzanne!

    I like Pete’s ideas of taking the robotoy to a new level. But, I’ll order one that does windows and cleans bathrooms. Just think, kiddo will probably get one of those cleaning robots, too.

    Joy~
