HONG KONG - July 2008 - What stands just over a foot tall, has three wheels, an animated face and a contagious personality? WowWee, an Optimal Group company (NASDAQ:OPMR), has announced the launch of the fun-loving RS Tri-bot™ robot, the next generation in the award-winning Robosapien™ line of entertainment robots. The RS Tri-bot robot is an interactive talking humanoid robot whose running commentary and dynamic personality make him a comical sidekick.

Featuring various play modes and hours of entertaining content, the RS Tri-bot robot features joke telling, story sequences, and built-in games. Equipped with an omni-directional, three-wheeled base for speed and agility, users can move RS Tri-bot precisely in all directions using the remote controller. The remote features a tilt-sensitive trigger that, with a simple press of the trigger and tilt of the hand, enables the RS Tri-bot robot to move in the corresponding direction.

The RS Tri-bot robot also features three interactive memory and repetition games - pattern, maze, and minefield - in which users navigate the RS Tri-bot robot through virtual obstacle races using the tilt-sensitive remote controller.
