>> Hi, I'm Tom Merritt, editor from CNET.com here at CES 2008 taking a look at Micro Robot's Herey. This is an educational robot, can be used as a toy, uses the Microsoft Robotic Studio for the programming. Let's take a look at what's it got on it. There is a proprietary port where you can add a webcam or maybe a motion detector, and then you can program it. You get the programs on via Bluetooth. There's also some control buttons here as well. The Blue button puts it into sort of the Toy mode and then it will walk around like a little cockroach or an ant, or something like that, just have fun to play with it. However, if you want to re-set it with the Reset button there, and then press the Green and the Blue buttons, that will put it in the Program mode. There's an LCD screen that kinda let you know what's going on, as well as the ability to be controlled with an Xbox controller because that's the beauty of being part of the Microsoft Robotic Studio. Takes 4 double-A batteries, they say you can get about an hour of play time out of it or programming time out of it. And if you have rechargeable batteries there is a DC port where you can re-charge it within the robot itself. Once again, it's the Microsoft Micro Robot Herey. Available for $129 in early Summer. At CES 2008, I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:19 [ Music ]
