Daddy here- since this is a mega-ultra-super serious man topic, I have taken it from my wife.
Now. I would like to talk to you about something serious for a moment. This serious topic is Robots. Robots are going to take over, and it is going to be soon. The next step in this evolution of our robo-overlords will come in the form of children’s toys. These toys are called Mechatars. Mechatars are/will be this season’s most wanted toy, thus invading living rooms and computers everywhere!
These crafty robots are not only remote controlled but are also members of a robust online gaming community. Your battles effect both your robots physical form as well as its digital form. This may be the only way to save humanity from the coming Armageddon.
Sorry I couldn’t help it these robots are so neat and have some very very smart features it is almost scary thinking about what they could do with just the spark of reason.
Mechatars are robot warriors that fight in both the physical world Earth, via a remote control and also online in the Mechaverse, via your computer, the internet and some cloud computing. The interesting part here which differentiates Mechatars from other toys lines with online components is they are connected. Your child will train their robot in the physical world then complete missions and battles in the online world. All the while transferring experience between the two and evolving and personalizing their robot as they progress. Upgrading and powering up your Mechatar is done in BOTH the physical world via purchasing of special weapon attachments as well as the digital world via leveling up and battles. Upgrades in either ‘world’ effects the other, seamless integration.
The Mechatars also interact with one another. I like toys that actually get kids to play together in real life, I feel there is not enough face to face interaction between people in general right now. It is nice to see a toy line which is so technologically advanced yet still sees the importance and fun of face to face play. I also like the responsibility the makers of Mechatars have taken in the digital world. They have a special note to parents about the product by mostly this note pertains to their children’s safety online. Nicely done Bossa Nova Robotics.
