NANOS VS. HAMSTERS
Who needs a Zhu Zhu pet? When the original Hexbug Nanos were conceived, there were over 150 variations of legs alone tested, so you know that this
robotic insect has a history. The final version allows the legs to bend and unbend,
allowing it to move forward. When you order the color may vary, but you will get
one that can not only flip over by itself but comes with an access code that allows
you to go online and play games.
Primula Products has a new coffeemaker — the Speak 'n Brew — that will ask you the time to set its clock and what time you would
like it to brew. The 10 cup Speak n' Brew has a chip inside that understands your speech to set the clock or to program the brew time. It
also works manually instead of using the Talk feature.
There are just two Simple Steps:
1) Press Talk; and 2) Listen and Speak.
Speak n' Brew answers confirming the time and shows in the display.
Every once in a while, WALL-E pops up in a new form. This time he
takes on the Transformers. The 5. 8 x
9. 5 x 8. 5" robotic dude starts out as a
cube, but when you press buttons, he
will reveal wheels, arms, and his head.
A Transformer Eve is also available.
She mostly resembles an egg until you
press her buttons. (No sexist jokes
