   Robopanda is an interactive robot made by the Wowwee company. The Robopanda uses interchangeable cartridges that contain personalities, stories and songs. He is controlled directly by touch and sound sensors. You can determine the outcome of stories, games, and even the mood he is in. RoboPanda can be a fun loving and curious robotic companion & friend.

   Robopanda operates in three different modes controlled by a 3 way power switch. Training mode, Friend mode, or Menu mode. After 4 minutes without touch input, Robopanda will enter Sleep mode. 

  In Training mode, Robopanda will explain his various functions and sensors. In Friend mode, Robopanda will converse, tell jokes and ask for touch stimulation. Robopanda will also recognize the MiniPanda when in Friend mode. Menu mode is broken down into 3 settings that are accessed by the touch sensors.
   Robopanda is comes alive via it's 8 motors which control its arms, legs, head, eyebrows and ears. Touch sensors are located in his hands, feet, head, belly and back. A tilt sensor is used to sense when Robopanda is lying down, leaning, or being carried. An RFID sensor in the belly is used to detect the presence of the MiniPanda accessory. Safety/pinch sensors in the armpits and back of neck will inhibit motion if triggered. The Robopanda requires 6 X C and 4 X AA size batteries.

   Robopanda can be 'programmed' by moving its arms and legs while in the Tricks setting of Training mode. Robopanda will then play back the sequence of movements. The program memory holds a limited number of movements, and the sequence of moves is retained in the cartridge only while it is inserted in Robopanda. The behavior of Robopanda can be changed by inserting a different personality cartridge.

   Robopanda is a playful and talkative interactive friend. With his engaging personality and bright animated eyes, Robopanda loves to share stories and jokes, play games, sing songs and talk with children of all ages. He’s a fun-filled robotic bear who can even crawl on all fours and return to a sitting position. RoboPanda has Realistic actions and a very interactive personality
