As any young guy growing up in the mid 70's should be, i have always been facinated by robots. My interest has been sparked up again after a recent shopping trip in Vegas where they had a product called "Robonova1" in a store we were in. Facinating piece of kit that you can program via basic or "catch and play" commands and his movement seems pretty amazing. Doing some further research, i've come across a few more that seem interesting, "Manoi" and "PLEN" (Especially PLEN, he can skateboard. Youtube it !! ). Anyone got or used one of these kits? Are they like most gadgets, cool for 10 minutes until you get bored? Nearly bought on of "the bay" but was outbid at the last minute I know they aren't as "intelligent" as AIBOS (which i have owned in the past, the ERS 3) but they seem pretty good fun. Would value opinions of those who have used them before shelling out for one .
