This is the third generation of the Robosapien toy robots from WowWee Robotics. It came in one colour, silver and orange and was packed with technological features, as you can see from the long list above. Its predecessor Robosapien V2 came out a year earlier in 2005. It had a similar body size, shape and design but without the media features. It came with bowling pins and a ball plus was available in three colours: red, white or blue. The original mark 1 Robosapien was released in 2004. It had a smaller body design with squat neck and high shoulders. Like all Robosapien’s it could walk, dance and perform Robosapien’s signature move of picking up objects. The Robosapien mark 1 was released in several colour variants, the most common being white with black accents.
