Robert Oschler, of RobotsRule, has posted a hands-on video review of the forthcoming WowWee robot, the Robosapien Tri-Bot. The bot sports some cool new features such as omni-wheels and tilt-motion control via its remote. The Tri-Bot is expected to ship this summer and retail for USD $99.

RobotsRule also has a Tri-Bot page with an in-depth written review, photo gallery, and another video of Tri-Bot at CES.
