CES 2008: WowWee's friendly Mr Personality robot

CES 2008, Robots

wowwee-mr-personality-robot.jpgThird WowWee bot of the night is Mr Personality, who isn’t as ugly as his name might lead you to believe. Well, that’s if you don’t mind robots with full-colour LCD screens for faces.

The idea is that Mr Personality uses the screen to show his emotions, apparently. He’ll actually have multiple personalities, each with their own facial features, which you download and then transfer onto the bot via USB or memory card.

WowWee says Mr Personality “entertains his human companions with jokes, conversations, games and daily fortunes found in various play modes”. Frankly, he sounds like he could be insufferable. Still, each to their own, I guess.
