October 14, 2003 – Beam roboticist Mark Tilden and Wow Wee Toys Ltd. have teamed up to produce RoboSapien, a 14? bi-pedal, humanoid entertainment robot. According to Wow Wee, the RoboSapien should be available to international markets starting spring 2004 at an estimated price of approximately $80-100 dollars. While RoboSapien is Tilden?s first commercial humanoid robot, it is not the first mass-market robot product he has produced in conjunction with Hong Kong based Wow Wee. Tilden also designed Wow Wee?s Beastland Dragons and 2001?s B.I.O. Bugs (which sold in the millions) products.
