RS Media Robosapein to Offer Multimedia Entertainment

It's clear that WowWee Robotics' Robosapien has some fans here and the latest model, the RS Media, offers more multimedia functionality than you could ever want from a little robot. The robot, a prototype of which was demoed at CES earlier this year, features an integrated LCD on which MPEG videos can be displayed; 50MB of internal memory store video and music files transferred over from a PC. Music bellows from the stereo speaker located in the robot's hands and a subwoofer on its back.

The RS Media is able to walk around the house, effectively "seeing" with infrared vision and moving about like an old man in a park feeding pigeons thanks to foot and gauntlet sensors. If the robot "hears" a sound, it will investigate and confront the culprit.

The 22-inch-tall RS Media will go on sale in Australia of all places this October for around $610 in real money.
