Where the Roboraptor was known to be challenged when it came to walking, especially on carpet and when itís batteries werenít fully charged, the Roboreptile is wonderfully agile and maneuverable. It can turn on a dime and itís quick. It can also walk and run quite well on reasonably short carpet.
Contrary to earlier reports, there is indeed a remote control for the Roboreptile, that also doubles as itís feeding pod; itís quite large in fact.
Despite promises to the contrary, WowWee's latest black-and-white robot does come with a remote control. In fact, it's a three-level remote that includes a demo mode, direction controls, a feed button, guard mode, and, most welcome, a three-level volume control. That's right, the Roboreptile is the first WowWee robot that lets users turn down the volumeóyou can choose from high, low, and mute.
