The Ultimate Wall-E robot toy debuted at Maker Faire 2008 on May 3-4 at the San Mateo Fairgrounds.
In the video, Wall-E first moves around looking for people to talk to. Then he plays some music and dances. Finally (in the dark portion of the video), he calls out for his friend Eva when he sees someone wearing a white shirt.
From Disney’s press release:
“Ultimate WALL·E features 10 motors, giving it a high level of movement and animation. The remote control makes it easy for kids to program WALL·E’s movements. An innovative touch programming system lets kids direct WALL·E simply by making patterns on the remote’s touch pad. With voice activation and a follow-me mode, WALL·E can follow the sound of a human voice and detect someone entering a room. He also has several emotional states and an easy system for programming thousands of combinations of movements with the remote. Numerous sensors allow him to detect and respond to his environment, including infrared sensors that allow him to detect obstacles and steer around them, sonic ears that detect sound direction, and touch sensors. Also MP3 compatible and features built-in speakers.”
It’ll be available in late September for about $189.99.
