Robonica was born out of frustration – frustration with the inability of the current generation of radio-controlled and robotic toys to provide any form of structured and interactive play, and frustration with the increasingly anti-social and intangible realities of video games.Having had numerous radio-controlled battery eaters foisted upon me and my demi-clones I can sympathize with the first part on that statement. Useless and annoying is how I would characterize most of the RC "toys". Forgotten in a day at most.
Robonica has some good images on their site, but not a lot of detail. Supposedly launching in September. We look forward to it.
