CONTEST CLOSED: CONGRATULATIONS DAVE D. FOR WINNING!
Next up in my Holiday Gift Guide is a super cool robot that your kids will love. This Silverlit Blu-Bot Intelligent Bluetooth Robot is a lot of fun to control. It has many features including Programmable Movements, Gesture Control, Voice Changer, and Dance Mode. Read on to learn more and for your chance to win one and get a jump on holiday toy shopping!
This cool robot can be controlled via a Bluetooth device including Android, iPhone 4 and above, iPad, and iPod Touch 4 or above. If you don't have a Bluetooth device there are also manual controls on the back that you can set the robot in to motion. I love that it doesn't take loads of batteries. Just plug it in via USB to your computer and it charges up. It does have a light indicator to know when you need to charge it.
We downloaded the Silverlit Blu-Bot app and it was easy to use with tutorials right within the app. Once we had Bluetooth turned on we just had to sync with the Blu-Bot when turned on. Now we were ready to go. Lauren was having the most fun with the voice changer. You can record anything and then play it back modulated in different ways. She also enjoyed watching the robot dance and programming his movements.
Movements are programmed in the app as a drag and drop functionality which allows you to have the robot go forward, backward, to the right and left. It also allows you to move his head left and right and change his facial expressions.
Here is some video of the robot in action and Lauren teaching us about how to use it.
Here you can see the manual controls on the back to use without a Bluetooth device.
He can also sense items in his way. In this case it was our dog Fred and he promptly turned around to avoid him.
Fred was a little confused by this robot.
He does work on hard surfaces or hard packed carpet. Plush carpet will be difficult for him to move on.
Here he is as packaged. The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price is $59.99. Learn more about the Blu-Bot here: http://www.silverlit.com/a/product/blu-bot/
