WowWee MiP RobotPrice: $79.99
WowWee’s MiP robot is sort of a cross between the Sphero and Cozmo robots. These robots can be controlled via an Android or iOS app, and can dance or even battle each other. The MiP’s physical stance, using two wheels instead of a ball, is reminiscent of the BB-8, and it can also take commands via hand gestures, indicating some rudimentary machine vision capability.
Besides all of that, it can get you drinks, and has a software development kit (SDK) available for your modding pleasure. Perhaps not as refined as the Sphero BB-8 or Cozmo, but the price is quite good, and its combination of features should be fun for kids to experiment with.
