Japan, the country of cool toys, has done it again with this palmtop boxing robot, the Battroborg! Two tethered wireless nunchak controllers are something of a shadow function
, putting you in direct control of the two arms - the left arm a hook and the right arm a long range straight right - of the robot. The punches also propel the robot forward, enabling the user to navigate slalom obstacles or maneuver around an opponent.
The real fun comes in when you put two or more Battroborgs together! Lights on the shoulders of the robots show how much damage is doled out and received, and robots can be set to lose matches after five successive hits. A hexagonal ring is available separately. Perfect gifts for your kids or geeky parents!
