The WowWee MiP Robot paired with WowWee's free app creates a consumer robot with lots of potential. Relatively small in size, the WowWee MiP Robo is only 7 inches tall and has no feet. It is black and white in design with a round head and emoticon eyes. It might remind you of Disney's Wall-E. The base of the robot features two large wheels and the torso including two poseable arms. MiP has a slot on its chest to hold MiPs tray.

MiP stands for Mobile Inverted Pendulum. The WowWee MiP Robot can balance and move quite well, similar to a Segway. The connection is extremely easy. To connect MiP to your mobile device you simply need to download the app. Once opened the MiP's ID will appear on the screen and you choose how you want to control the robot. The WowWee MiP Robot uses GestureSense technology and hand motion control as well.
