The remote to rule the robo-world

"RoboRemote" promises to control all WowWee-made IR bots.

Even in the robo-universe all good things come to an end, as we saw with the passing of the beloved Robosapien. But with change comes opportunity, no matter how ill-conceived it might be.

And in this new era WowWee has decided to make good on its promise to release a universal remote that can control all the creations in its ever-expanding stable of bots. The "RoboRemote" works with any infrared-
controlled robot made by the prolific company, though it requires the use of Windows XP or Vista software. We just hope it's not as complicated as other remotes that have left us with psychological and emotional scars.
