Fast moving, fully functional humanoid robot toy can walk, run, turn, pick-up, throw, and kick by remote control

RobosapienThe Robosapien Robot is a full function fast moving robot. Designed by a NASA scientist, the robot is simple enough for kids and advanced enough for adults. Features include real, multi-speed fast dynamic walking, running and turning; fast, full function arms with two types of grippers; 67 pre-programmed functions including pick-up, throw, kick, and sweep. Programmable reflexes to touch, pickup, kicks or sound; and up to 84 program steps, with 4 program modes for advanced operations. No computer required, all functions handled by an ergonomic remote control. This is like a robotic video game character for the home. He's fast moving, fully functional and comes to life at a touch of the remote.

NASA has been a pioneer in the field of robotics, particularly in applications designed for space exploration and research. Robots such as the Mars rovers—Spirit, Opportunity, Curiosity, and Perseverance—have become invaluable tools for studying the Martian surface, soil, and atmosphere. These robotic systems are designed to withstand extreme conditions, navigate challenging terrains, and carry out complex scientific experiments. NASA's contributions aren't limited to planetary exploration; they also include the development of robotic arms like the Canadarm used on the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. The technologies created have often found applications on Earth as well, in fields ranging from medicine to manufacturing. Overall, NASA's work in robotics has dramatically advanced our understanding of the universe and has paved the way for future innovations in both space exploration and terrestrial applications.
