Welcome to Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas giveaway series! Today I'm giving away a super-cool dinosaur robot: Blazor, the raging raptor from iloveRobot. iLoveRobots is the toy brand of Bossa Nova Robotics, a consumer robotics company known for their incredibly dynamic and interactive robots like the Penbo Penguin and the Prime-8 Gorilla. This is no ordinary remote-control toy -- Blazor has sensors that help him avoid obstacles, go into attack mode when someone gets too near, fight with other robots, or freak out when you hold him too long!
Here's more information about Blazor:
This raging raptor is a swift and sly high-tech dino who hunts and defends at your command! With maximum speed, Blazor goes from 'Search & Destroy' mode, where he instinctively explores his environment, tracks down his prey and attacks, to 'Guard' mode, becoming a silent and obedient protector who growls at intruders then spins and roars to drive them away, to ‘Direct Control’ mode, where the owner controls the raptor’s every move - where he goes, when he stops, and when he strikes.
Each of Blazor’s three modes offers kids hours of fun as Blazor interacts with his owner and environment. His advanced intelligence and built-in sensors means that he can avoid obstacles, detect movement, play with other Blazors (or even Prime-8!) and obey controller commands. Owners can also control Blazor’s mood through his jaw, tapping or holding it to wake him up, rile him up and calm him back down. But if it's held too long, Blazor might fight back! Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and online. For more information and retailer locations, visit www.iloverobots.com.
Here's a video showing how Blazor works:
