    The battle for the most advanced robot is going to be a tough one but WowWee doesn’t intend to back out from the competition. Launching its first humanoid robot that responds to voice command, WowWee starts another promising endeavor into the world of robotics. The name of its new project is Joebot.

    Joebot is stuffed with lots of amazing features designed to enhance the user’s experience. Joebot can quickly respond to key phrases, crack very funny jokes, and walk in fast fluid-like motion. Joebot also comes integrated with an obstacle detection sensor in order to better navigate through its surroundings. This navigation system is further enhanced by an IR sensor that allows it to see what’s in front of him.

    Users can control and program this WowWee robot through its joystick hands.  It has six different modes: Battle, Beatbox, Game, Patrol, Robot, & Program mode.

    Battle mode: user can shoot the robot using an IR remote controller that triggers the robot to play a death scene.

    Beatbox mode: tap any beat rhythm and Joebot can copy the same beat.

    Game mode: user can play the exciting “Simon Says” game anytime
