Inventor Jim Wyatt tells us this is the perfect home robotics system, filling the gap between Tomy’s iSobot and Robonova.
Ready to run straight out of the box after a battery power-up the Mech RC uses an entertaining on-screen software which you manipulate the movements of the robot as an animation then load up your action sequence, much more interesting than pressing a sequence of buttons we say.
We’ve been promised the first UK test when the prototypes arrive in the coming weeks so keep an eye out.
