9780071463096: The Official Robosapien Hacker's Guide

The Robosapien robot was one of the most popular hobbyist gifts of the 2004 holiday season, selling approximately 1.5 million units at major retail outlets. The brief manual accompanying the robot covered only basic movements and maneuvers -- the robot's real power and potential remain undiscovered by most owners -- until now! This is the official Robosapien guide -- endorsed by WowWee (the manufacturer) and Mark Tilden (the designer). This timely book covers all the possible design additions, programming possibilities, and "hacks" not found anyplace else.
