Although robot toy technology has been around for a while, the smarter it gets, the better toys are becoming for kids—just look at this robot dinosaur toy from WowWee.

The Miposaur is a high-tech robot toy that's like this generation's version of a Tamagotchi. The dinosaur toy needs to be walked, played with and fed, and will communicate its mood (curious, excited or annoyed) to kids. In turn, children are able to interact with the toy using multiple hand gestures or the accompanying app.

Although this all seems quite simple, WowWee takes the integration of technology to the next level with beacon technology. The bot comes with a ball, which makes it possible to guide the dinosaur on walks, or have it hunt down the ball like a piece of meat.
