My Keepon Robot Is Now On Sale!
Originally designed as a tool to help autistic children improve their social development skills, My Keepon could easily have become just another robot living in a lab that none of us never knew existed had co-creators Marek Michalowski and Hideki Kozima not decided to upload a video showing Keepon's impressive ability to dance along to the beat of music.
Winning over the hearts of kids of all ages as My Keepon bounced and swayed to the music soon everyone wanted a yellow dancing robot of their own, but with a price tag of $30,000, the reality was very few of us could afford one... that is until now! Seeing Beatbots (the company created by Michalowski and Kozima) join forces with toy company Wow Stuff, Keepon Pro not only got himself a new name, but also a much more affordable price tag of £40 (of which a percentage goes to further fund the autism therapy work that lead to the robot being created in the first place.)
Designed with all the best features still intact, you can guarantee My Keepon will delight children of all ages this Christmas. Featuring a touch mode that sees him respond to pokes, squeezes and taps with everything from bounces, bops, tilts, squeaks and even sneezes, it's as much fun trying to work what you can make him do as opposed to actually watching what he does.
And the fun with Keepon doesn't end there. Press the music button on his base and My Keepon turns into a dancing robot. Programmed to not only dance in time to the beat of any music you play him, but also never do the same dance move twice this is one clever chap! Oh, and if you're worried about being driven mad by having to endure music all day long don't be. My Keepon not only reacts to music, but also claps and taps meaning your kids can have hours of fun without you having to contend with their music all day long.
Landing on US shores last month, My Keepon's popularity has proved so large that he's now being sold on Ebay for hundreds of dollars and with papers like The Sun and Daily Mail tipping him to be the hottest toy this Christmas we're sure it's not going to be too long before this little robot is selling out here too... which is why we've created the site that you've landed on today!
