Boutique robot company Robosen has partnered with Pixar and Disney to release a screen-accurate 'Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear' figurine from Pixar’s new Lightyear film.
This toy is particularly unique because it has fluid mobility and the ability to converse with its users. This is possible thanks to Robosen's use of 50 different microchips, 23 precision motors, and an array of advanced algorithms. In addition, the 42 cm tall Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear features four programming modes: ' block-based,' 'voice,' '3D software,' and 'manual.' Moreover, the figurine comes with five interchangeable Space Tanger tools, including items such as the Space Ranger Blaster and the Laser Blade Dx.
Nonetheless, the most notable aspect of the action figure is its built-in conversational AI, which features intelligent voice recognition that allows for natural, flowing conversations between users and the toy.
