About this book

You'll loveThe Robosapien Companion: Tips, Tricks, and Hacks whether you're a robotics expert or beginner. And whether you own a Robosapien or not, you'll learn about the workings and theory of this fun robot. An owner of several Robosapiens himself, author Jamie Samans covers everything from basics like diagnosing and testing your new Robosapien, to advanced topics like hacking and modifications. He thoroughly covers what he calls the "curiosity and creativity" of this famous bot.

The book functions as both a practical user guide and an interesting read about the theory behind the machine: BEAM robotics (BEAM stands for biology, electronics, aesthetics, and mechanics). You'll learn about Robo's 67 unique functions, and get the full scoop on the line of Robosapiens: the Robopet, the Roboraptor, and the bipedal Robosapien V2. By the books end, you'll come to master your V1 or become fully prepared for the exciting upgrades included in V2.
