WowWee Develops MiP Toys

wowwee-mip[CES 2014] The folks over at WowWee have churned out their fair share of high tech toys in the past, and this year is no different for them as well. Apparently, WowWee has been working alongside UCSD (University of California in San Diego), where this particular collaboration has resulted in “MiP” hi-tech toys. MiP stands for Mobile Inverted Pendulum (MIP), where it would come across as a robot toy which can be controlled using hand gestures or by Bluetooth, with a smartphone or a tablet in the background to run proceedings.

Apart from that, the MiP also boasts of the ability to maintain its balance as it carries an object about using its attachable tray. Users will be tickled to know that this tiny robot that could would also come with an interactive capability to be more “friendly” to its surroundings, including a limited “voice” such as the likes of the famous astromech droid, R2D2, being able to dance with your iTunes, as well as play games with humans. Those who are interested in picking up the MiP from WowWee will have to play the patience card here, as it will only be released officially this June for $99.99 a pop. [Press Release]
