@The NYC Toy fair 2008 Erector was there, perhaps best known for Erector sets – but these folks had a mind blowing product line that I didn’t expect. They have a series of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth robots that work with iPhones and iPods and controllable from anywhere in the world.
They had their “classic” Erector set on display, but that’s no match for this giant creature.
Lastly, they licensed R2-D2 from Star Wars and sorta went nuts – this R2 unit is a real home projects, web camera, DVD player, iPod / iPhone stereo – and a robot you can control from anywhere. When it needs to project, it tilts back and projects a stunning image just like any other home projector. Obi-Wan you’re my only hope, and $3,000+ dollars. It’s not released – this was it’s debut.
Oh, it’s remote is a Millennium Falcon, of course.
