MechRC robot – possibly the most exciting robot toy we’ve found

MechRC RobotIn celebration of our fantastic Remote Control Helicopter competition, we’ve gone on the hunt for the best RC toys around – and this one is going to take some beating. The love child of a Robot inventor and one of the Transformers‘ artists, MechRC Robot is the most interactive, programmable robot toy we can find. He features over 100 pre-installed motions and sounds, and can be easily programmed on your computer. The best part is, all of your PC interaction is with an animated film strip – it doesn’t get much easier!

MechRC RobotYou just manipulate the animated robot on the screen, save the sequence, and then have him repeat his new dance/fighting/dinner making moves later with the IR remote control. You can also upload music files to play through the speaker in MechRC‘s chest.

The MechRC Robot‘s 17 servos offer up to 180 degree movement, so there’s no limitations as to the moves you can get him to do! Not the cheapest RC toy we’ve looked at, but certainly one of the coolest. Available now for £399 from
