According to novelty manufacturer Wow Wee Toys, the difference between men and boys isn’t the size of their toys … it’s the technology powering the plaything. Witness the Robosapien, a moody robot minion designed by former NASA scientist Dr. Mark W. Tilden. Capable of performing 67 preprogrammed functions including throw, dance, and fart — plus six killer kung fu moves — the dashing droid walks, runs, and hoists light objects on command. Half a dozen sensors located throughout its body
detect obstacles and obstructions, allowing for fluid motion, while fully articulated arms complement the illusion of natural movement. We’re eternally grateful that remote-control-issued commands don’t include “enslave humanity.” $99. www.wowwee.com
