'Robosapien' is going Hollywood

The Britney Spears of bots gets its first role

WowWee

Not that there was ever much doubt, but WowWee's career path for the "Robosapien" is now abundantly clear: They want to make it the Britney Spears of the robot world. (It already has the same hairdo .)

Only days after toy Robosapiens descended on McDonald's Happy Meals , RoboCommunity reports that the celebrity bot will star in its own movie, a collaboration with Arad Productions of Spiderman and X-Men fame. Touted as a combination of live action and CGI, the movie is scheduled for release in 2009.

But they'd better hurry. As the market gets flooded with new generations of bots all the time, the Robosapien could easily get mowed down --just like Hollywood.
