Though Roboboa is a toy, its abilities compare quite well with some of the other robots in this slideshow. Its movements seem at least as sophisticated as many of the more expensive R&D projects. Roboboa can rotate, swivel, spin, lift itself, and rove around. It has four motorized sections, an infrared sensor, a light-intensity sensor, an audio speaker, three tri-color LED eyes, and nine animation LEDs. In aware mode, the 15-inch (38.1cm), four-pound (1.81kg) remote-controlled robot can offer a number of responses to objects in front of it, such as flinching, following, or turning away. It can also act as an alarm clock or a flashlight, and it can communicate via light and sound patterns with other toys made by the same manufacturer.
