Robonica Roboni - I Programmable Gaming Robot

Meet Roboni-i, a highly-intelligent robot that fuses interactive, remote-controlled gameplay with advanced robotic technology. Operated wirelessly using a handheld controller and featuring four processors and 16 sensors, Roboni-i can sense and respond to his environment, explore the room on its own, and even engage in games with other Roboni-i units. A great toy for young robotics enthusiasts, Roboni-i can also be linked to your computer, allowing to reprogram his behavior and upload customized games.

What We Think

Fun factor:
Ease of assembly:
Educational factor:
Novelty factor:

The Good: Cutting-edge robotics technology; intuitive RC controls; customizable robot behaviors

The Challenging: Robot is a bit too jittery when left alone; editing programs require some technical savvy

In a Nutshell: Highly advanced, interactive robot toy, ideal for older children and robotics enthusiasts

Roboni-i senses his environment using infrared and touch sensors. View larger.

The controller features an intuitive design and an LED screen where you can view your Roboni-i's status. View larger.

Cutting-Edge Robotic Technology
With his futuristic architecture and space-age silver color, Roboni-i would fit right at home in a science fiction movie. He features a durable plastic chassis that protects his intricate inner technology.
Inside of Roboni-i are 12 infrared sensors, which the robot uses to sense his surroundings, "talk" to other robots and communicate with the included BaseStation. He also features highly-sensitive touch sensors on his front and back bumpers, allowing him to sense even the slightest physical contact.
When Roboni-i senses something, he responds immediately by executing complex behaviors. For instance, if he collides with a wall, he'll whistle with displeasure, turn around, and proceed in the opposite direction. If he spots his BaseStation or another Roboni-i unit, he might fire off his laser. If left by himself for more than 30 seconds, he may even begin to explore the environment on his own. He'll always remain near his BaseStation, though, so you don't have to worry about him wandering off by himself.

Fast, Nimble Remote-Control Action
With a full, 360-degree range of motion, Roboni-i is incredibly agile. You control Roboni-i using a comfortable handheld controller, which communicates wirelessly with the robot. The controller's LCD screen displays various aspects of the robot's status, such as his level of "happiness," his battery life, current game mode, and so on.
The robot is surprisingly fast, and he's even capable of stunts and loops. Keep in mind that his plastic frame houses complex electronics, so don't get too wild with your stunts. He's by no means an all-terrain vehicle and is best driven on a hard, flat surface.

Roboni-i features the latest in robotic toy technology. View larger.

Loaded with Personality
Roboni-i isn't just a mindless automaton that you control. He is a moody, sensitive robot that seems to have a mind of his own! He is at his happiest when he gets lots of attention, and when he is in close vicinity to his BaseStation.
If you switch his BaseStation off or move it out of reach, he will have a robotic "freak-out" and begin frantically searching for it. When he's in a good mood, he will randomly fire off his laser, run away and "hide" from you, and perform other playful acts.
When you pay close attention to Roboni-i, you earn "RoboTX" levels -- a measure of how much your robot trusts you. As you earn more and more RoboTX levels, your robot will gain access to more advanced actions and movements. This is a fun feature that allows your robot to grow dynamically with you as its owner. However, it also requires you to invest time in playing with your robot in order to get the most out of the toy.

Roboni-i can engage in multiplayer gameplay with other Roboni-i robots. View larger.

Interactive Single- and Multi-Player Games
The feature that distinguishes Roboni-i from other robotic competitors is its ability to participate in real gameplay and multiplayer games with other Roboni-i owners. To set up a multiplayer game, the robots must "join" each other in a group so they will be able to identify each other. Once this happens, you're free to interact with other Roboni-i units and play games with them.

Reprogram Roboni-i with Your Computer

Edit Roboni-i's behavior with your PC. View larger.
Using the included Command Center program, you can customize the way your Roboni-i reacts to different stimuli. The program is very easy to use, although it does take some degree of computer competence (which younger kids may not have.) A drag-and-drop menu lets you easily program your robot to reverse, spin around, crabwalk, flash its activity LEDs, and more. The program also comes with a comprehensive tutorial, making it easy to learn how to use your robot.
The Command Center program is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7. It is backed by a 1-year limited warranty.

let's play a game of "kick the tripod" followed by "kick yourself in the ass the rest of the night"

let's play a game of

Taken in a lava tube/cave way out in the National Forest several miles from anywhere in central Oregon. The only light in the cave was from two shafts of light, which only occurs in the early morning. Focusing was a bitch, so I found a spot, focused, threw the camera into manual focus so it wouldn't try to be "smart" and refocus, then took some shots. Only I am an utter klutz, and must have knocked my damned tripod while scrambling on volcanic rock and trying not to break my ankle. So my test shot is in focus, and nothing else is. Sometimes it's just that sort of day.

This trip wasn't about photo taking so much as Patrick and I getting out of the apartment, together, with a destination, not a day trip, for the first time in months, just the two of us. We took the dogs, and today, out in the deserted forest, I let my dogs run off-leash with us on the trail, as there wasn't another human or car for miles around. They had a blast, they haven't run like that, off leash, since we left NH. The dog park isn't the same thing as meandering around, within 20 feet of us, but no rules about other dogs or jumping on people or anything. Just us, loose, and having fun, and frolicking, with them rocketing around until they were panting and ready to leave. The fun thing about pugs is that it doesn't take long for them to lay down and want to get in the car and enjoy air conditioning.

We also went to a fabulous little piece of Americana yesterday afternoon, Peterson's Rock Garden, a little piece of nostalgia with an American-theme flare, built in the depression (and a little beyond), that somehow has survived all these years without being torn down or utterly destroyed. Hokey, kitschy, charming, all appropriate adjectives. The kids would be bored, and you wouldn't spend more than 20 minutes there, but worth the few dollar suggested donation to check out. And hey, it's in the Weird Oregon book, and as someone who owns the Weird New England book and the Weird NJ book, I sort of live for those weird side of the road attractions. : )

We will be returning to Bend and the surrounding area soon, this time we'll board the dogs, and stay in a dive of a hotel (though the one we stayed at this time wasn't particularly glamorous, the towels can only be described as "exfoliating" though they were white, and hey, Podnah's Pit was on Diners Drive-ins and Dives on Food Network...) and we have plans to hit a ton of fun places we scouted this time (some were still snowed in, others we were carrying hot Pugs).

I think this place is begging to be a part of my nude series.
