Goddamnit, I Need Me a Robot

Say hello to Roboraptor.












Here is what his people have to say about him:

ROBORAPTOR™
A Fusion of Technology and Personality

Dinosaurs are back and roaming the earth in the 32” long Roboraptor, an advanced fusion of technology and personality. With his advanced artificial intelligence personality, realistic biomorphic motions, direct control and autonomous (free-roam) modes, the Age of Dinosaurs has truly returned. Roboraptor comes to life with the following features:

- Fluid bi-pedal motion: walking, running and predatory gaits
- Realistic body movements: turning head and neck; whipping tail actions
- Three distinct moods: hunter, cautious and playful
- Autonomous environmental interaction: responds with mood specific behaviors and sounds
- Mood dependent behavior: aggressive/hunting mood; nervous/cautious mood; friendly/playful mood
- Multi-sensory: touch sensors in his tail, chin and mouth; sonic sensors
- Infra-red vision system detects objects in his path, or approaching him
- Powerful jaws that play tug-of war games, “bite” and pull
- “Laser” tracking technology: trace a path on the ground and he’ll follow it
- Visual and sonic guard mode
- Responds to commands from Robosapien V2
- Auto shut-off function
- Video game style controller
- Demonstration mode
- 40+ pre-programmed functions
- Battery Requirements: 6 X "AA", 3 X "AAA" (not included)

I feel like he and his battery food source needs to come live with me. But not that Robosapien fool. He's just too subservient and into showing off dance moves for my taste.

I can see this flying thru "Expense Tracker" with no problem what-so-ever.

But we needed it for *research*. All the kids will have them and we have to know how to use them so we can market to the kids!!

I have an idea that I need your support on. Remember the polar bears? New game featuring robot dinosaurs. Featuring, what? That's right: robot dinosaurs as prizes.

Hot. Damn.

I wonder how many Petro-Points it would take to get a Robot Dinosaur? It should definitely be added to the Reward lineup.
