'A.M.P. Bot' wheels into robotic competition

Two-wheeled animatron balances on its gyroscopic system.

I4U News

Not even a month has passed since the " Tri-Bot " has succeeded the Robosapien, and already another wheeled animatron is mounting a challenge. The "A.M.P." (Automated Musical Personality) Bot from Tiger Electronics differs from the Tri-Bot by navigating on two wheels instead of three, a feat made possible by its gyroscopic system.

It's also not meant as a kindergarten toy, according to Gearlog, measuring 2.5 feet tall and weighing in at a hefty 15 pounds. The target consumer's age is between 16 and 25, in fact, and for good reason: The A.M.P., which also plays and dances to the beat of MP3s, is expected to cost between $400 and $500 when it rolls into stores in October.
