Overview & History

The introduction of WowWee’s Robosapien™ robot in 2004 revolutionized the way we interact with entertainment robotic companions.

Overview One of the most popular entertainment robots in the world, with global sales of more than 6 million units, the Robosapien robot was the first commercially available biomorphic robot – a fusion of technology and personality. The Robosapien humanoid product line evolved to include 2005’s Robosapien V2 robot, which added functionality like speech capability, and 2006’s RS Media™ robot, which featured a complete multimedia experience that allowed users to create and edit functions. In 2008 and 2009, the next generation of personality-packed companions—the RS Tri-Bot™, Joebot, and Roborover robots—was released and provided endless entertainment with different play modes.

With a focus on the development of breakthrough consumer technologies, WowWee continues to forge new categories in personal robotics and entertainment with its imaginative, innovative, award-winning gadgets and toys. Consumers can see items from several distinct product lines -- WowWee Robotics™, Paper Jamz®, Light Strike™, Lite Sprites™, WowWee Alive™, WowWee FlyTech™, WowWee Technologies™ – that include innovations that walk, talk, jam, fire, color, purr, fly, and project.
