Thanks to a very timely heads-up from our good friend and fellow robot fanatic David Buckley, we were vectored to a 'sneak peek' video (see below) featuring the Wall-E robot that Disney has scheduled to go on sale later this summer following the commercial movie release.
Although the video is extremely dark and the volume is pretty low, you can still tell a lot about the robot and its unique remote control. At the projected USD$189 price point we're sure that a lot of robot and Disney/Pixar fans are going to find Wall-E scooting around the base of their Christmas this coming December.
The remote control is a little larger than we expected, and seems to require two hands to operate. On the other hand (pun intended), the touch pad is a very interesting, and hopefully useful, feature.
