What is the Meccanoid?
The Meccanoid is a highly innovative, programmable personal robot that can be constructed at home. Coming with six motors to control the arms and feet, your robotic companion can show off a wide range of movements. Download the free app and you can control your Meccanoid’s limbs with ease, as well as capturing movements for you to show off in front of your friends.

How long will it take to build?
The recommended age for the Meccanoid is 10 and above. However, this is not purely a kids’ product – children and adults alike can enjoy having a personal robot. Your robotic companion can be built in approximately eight hours. Have fun building your Meccanoid, then enjoy the unique experience of interacting with and programming it.

What added advantages does the app give me?
The free downloadable app gives you an added range of features to make your robot a fully interactive bundle of fun. By simply placing your smart device into the Meccanoid’s chest, you can activate the motion capture mode and watch as it mirrors your every move. You can also use the on-screen ragdoll avatar to make your Meccanoid twist, turn and move any way you want by swiping the screen on your device.

What else is the Meccanoid capable of?
The Meccanoid uses built-in voice recognition to understand your commands. It comes with over 1,000 pre-programmed phrases, comments and witty comebacks as well as being able to tell jokes and recite fun facts. Your new robotic companion will even give you a high five. There is no limit to the excitement, entertainment and exploration the Meccanoid will bring to your life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As far as I can tell the contents look fine as I have bought for my grandchildrens Christmas present and will know more when built at Christmas. Am looking forward to this to see how well it works.

Hi, this states it is "used". Is it in the original packaging, does it still get built up and programmed?

Asked by: Hazel
This will be in the original packaging and will still need building and programming.
