New Kyosho Robots Take To The Sky (Video)
Not content with the commanding position held by it's two top-of-the-line humanoid robots, the MANOI AT01 and PF01, Kyosho is about to roll out a brand new robot that can actually fly.
Actually, to be more accurate and to set proper expectations, the new Robo Hopper flying robot is closer to a mini helicopter that happens to have a robot shape. Still, a 'robot' is a robot, even when it's a model of a robot. And, this one looks like it will be a lot of fun to play with.
Robo Hopper (see video below) is scheduled to hit store shelves in Japan this December (2007). The remote control uses 4 AA batteries and the robot plugs into the remote to recharge. A 15 minute charging cycle provides up to 5 minutes of play time. Up to 25 Robo Hoppers can be separately controlled at the same time using the 2.4 gigahertz remote system.
