      WowWee’s Joebot is a traditional walking robot, but comes with a new “fast and fluid” motion that should see him zipping around your living room less stiffly than the Robosapien. He can tell jokes, beat box, dance, play a game of Simon Says and even have a fight with you – shoot him with an IR remote control and he’ll enact a little “death” scene. And when he does fall over, he’ll even ask you to help him back up. In Beatbox mode, Joebot plays back up to 200 beats in a row. Joebot can detect obstacles and avoid them on his own.

      The WowWee Joebot is like a wacky cartoon character full of jokes and hilarious comments. Eyes and mouth light up when he talks. The artificial intelligence level is very high and he uses latest technology and algorithms for a whole new level of interactivity. Joebot features joystick hands that allow you to control and program him. IR Sensors allow Joebot to “see” most objects in front of him. The volume control is very good and is automatically adjusted by artificial intelligence. In Patrol Mode Joebot will walk around freely and let you know what he thinks about his surroundings. Joebot entertains you with the help of his hilarious Conversation Demo. With his Dance Demo Joebot will show off his moves with one of his dance routines.
