A few weeks ago we were extremely jealous when we found out that Sprocket2Cog managed to get his hands on one of the new Viper robot system kits from Microbric. Today we got a screening of the Viper promotional video, and its easy to see why he rushed out to buy one. The new Viper is totally outrageous!
Of course, as we mentioned in our earlier post, Microbric is only marketing the Viper through Dick Smith Electronics in Australia – at least for now. We can hardly wait for the kit to be sold outside the country – especially here in Japan. The video (see link below) is just over 5 minutes long and must have cost a small fortune. The production quality, stop motion action, and even the story line show off all the capabilities and potential of Viper to a “T”.
