Tomy, the Japanese Toy giant has been trying to branch out its product range to aim for a more mature market. They have developed a new robot toy which it is hoped will be as successful as similar products on the market such as the robosapiens.
The i-SOBOT is supposedly the world’s smallest two-legged walking robot with 165mm in height. It can be controlled via a remote and can also obey voice commands.
Tomy are aiming the robot towards gadget loving young men.
The price of the Tomy i-SOBOT will be 31,290 yen ($257) and the small robot will start shipping in Japan from July. Tomy is hoping to sell 50,000 i-SOBOTs in Japan and 250,000 more overseas.
