Celebrity Baby Trends is always on the lookout for the coolest products.
Today, we’re super excited to introduce you to MiP™, the must-have toy for tech and robot fans of all ages, and the HOTTEST toy for holiday 2014! Once you read all about this amazing robot, you’ll want one of your own, so we’re also excited to report that you’ll have your chance to win one!
Meet…MiP (Mobile Inverted Pendulum), the latest innovation by WowWee in association with the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) Coordinated Robots Lab. MIP is a fully interactive robot able to navigate its surroundings while controlled by hand movements using GestureSense™ technology.
With its unique dual wheel balancing, this multifunctional and autonomous robot is more than just a toy. MiP responds to the swipe of a hand through the air—swipe in any direction, and MiP will follow. Users can program up to 50 hand swipes in a row. Clap twice, and MiP will play it back. Along with a tray accessory that can be attached, MiP can balance multiple objects while moving or standing still—even another MiP.
Not only does MiP offer plenty of game time fun, there is also a free app powered by an iOS or Android smart device that also allows users to operate the robot. The app enables users to drive MiP, play games, make MiP dance to any song in their iTunes library and more.
We love MiP’s responsive personality communicated through motion, sound and LED eyes. Highly responsive to its surroundings, MiP detects objects in the way, acknowledges them, avoids them, and keeps on going. Plus, MiP is really cute! It’s recommended for kids ages 8 and up.
MiP is available at the WowWee online store, where, if you sign up, you’ll receive 10% off your next purchase! It’s also sold at Target, Toys “R” Us, Kohl’s, Kmart, Walmart and other retailers. SRP $99
