Go-Robo software for WowWee Robots

Fun & Games Robotics

Q4 Technologies, Ltd is a UK company that makes a line of software to control the WowWee toy/hobby robots. Anyone who’s spent any time using a WowWee controller to remote-control or script program routines for their bot knows how tedious, and limiting, this method can be. Go-Robo Studio works with most of the WowWee Robotics line, some with more control options than others, and sells for GBP60 (about $87). Go-Robo Choreography is for creating dance routines for Femisapien (about $58), and Dawg Trainer is for programming Wrex the Dawg ($58). The programs are all Windows-compatible only.
