Tiger Electronics / Sega June 2008 AMP (Automated Music Personality robot) - the ultimate musical robot?

If you can’t convince your partner to go to salsa lessons with you, why not trade them in for a robot? Or, to be more specific, an Automated Music Personality (AMP) that knows all the moves.
AMP: plays music, dances and follows you around

AMP is the result of a joint initiative between Tiger Electronics and Sega Toys to create the…er… ”future of music mobility”. The 29in-high machine connects to any MP3 player, thanks to a docking station in its back, and will quite happily pump out music doing dancing for you - without complaining that its feet hurt.
It has five basic moves: dance, track, drive, park and follow - although we’re not sure what move AMP would pull off if you asked it to do The Robot. Movement is based around Segway-style wheels that rely on a piezoelectric gyroscope.
AMP’s not just a one-trick pony though, because it also boasts over 62 different sound effects, knowledge of numerous “electrifying dance moves” and 49 expressive LED light animations.
Users control the musical robot through a remote control and several sets of speakers are built into the AMP’s body, including a 5in mid-range speaker and two tweeters.
Despite looking like handy pizza holders, AMP’s two circular ‘hands’ are actually touch pads for layering different sound effects and scratches over your music.
The Automated Music Personality robot will be available in October for $500 (£250/€300).

Tiger Electronics & Sega Toys Oct 2008 AMP Automated Music Personality

Move over WALL-E, take a hike Rolly, Automated Music Personality—from Hasbro's Tiger Electronics and Sega Toys—has come to claim the throne of dancing robot music speakers once and for all. Video after the jump
Its Segway-esque legs dance to the beat of any MP3 player via 3.5mm jack, and its 49 LEDs stay shining like some kind of cybernetic Rhinestone Cowboy. The A.M.P. has touch-sensitive DJ scratching pads and 62 sound effects built in so you can spice up your songs with a little 'wiki-wiki', and an IR sensor so he will follow you (and his remote) from room to room and keep the music playing in your direction.
Too bad the A.M.P. costs 500-f'ing-dollars, which won't even buy you a Li-ion battery, since you either plug the knee-high bot into the wall (huh?) or fill it full of D cells. What's this thing made of? SOLID GOLD? It sure dances like it. Bring the price down to $99, and I will buy it. Available in October.

Hasbro / Tiger Electronics Nov 2007 MIO PUP: An Interactive Companion - PC Magazine

Hasbro's MIO PUP is a cross between the plush Pound Puppies from the '80s and the Tamagotchi virtual pets from the 90s. For girls ages six to nine, PUP is a cute and loveable interactive pet that stands 10 inches tall. Pet, hold, or speak to it, and the adorable pup responds with colorful LEDs, sounds, and music, and even babbles back in its own robotic pup language.
Through 'emototronic' technology, it shows over 100 different animations in its eyes, such as feelings of happiness, surprise, hunger, and love. And just like a real pet, it walks and loves to be held. Tickle under its chin and stroke its back, and watch it wiggle its little tail and ears. Give the dog a bone, and its eyes will light up.
The MIO PUP companion is available for $49.99 (direct) and comes with four AA batteries.

Hi, I'm MIO PUP! The more we play together, the more you'll learn about me. My eyes can show you if I'm happy or sad, excited or hungry! I'm an ultra-cool mash-up of high-tech robotics, virtual emotion, and EMOTOTRONIC technology!

Tiger Electronics Feb 2007 Toy Fair
American International Toy Fair 2007

Brushing your teeth is about to feel – and sound – better than ever as Tiger Electronics delivers on its promise of product innovation with the revolutionary TOOTHTUNES, a brand new toothbrush featuring proprietary technology that will encourage people of all ages to brush for two full minutes – the amount of time generally recommended by dentists. TOOTHTUNES’ safe and patented technology transmits songs and music vibrations through the teeth, which are then heard in the inner ear. Users will hear two full minutes of the hottest music from today’s biggest stars, which will keep them brushing. Hasbro will introduce up to 20 different versions of TOOTHTUNES this spring, each featuring a hit song. Kids can choose from a variety of their favorite tunes, the first wave to hit store shelves includes: All Star, Smashmouth; Get'cha Head in the Game, B5 from the High School Musical soundtrack; Best of Both Worlds, Mylie Cyrus / Hannah Montana; We're All in this Together, from the High School Musical soundtrack; The Party's Just Begun, The Cheetah Girls; Kiss The Girl, Ashley Tisdale. For updates on new TOOTHTUNES releases visit www.toothtunes.com. (Approximate retail price $9.99; Available nationwide in February 2007. Three AAA batteries are included.)
POWER TOUR Electric Guitar
Turn It On, Turn It Up, Rock Out™! With the POWER TOUR Electric Guitar, guitar fans can learn to pound out power cords, shred leads and rock right out of the box! Featuring four different modes – ‘jam,’ ‘learn,’ ‘band’ and ‘speaker’ - music enthusiasts can choose to learn how to play the 12 pre-loaded songs or plug in an MP3 player and jam along to their favorite playlist. Once a song is selected, tweens simply follow along to the lights - the POWER TOUR Electric Guitar will ‘light’ the way to where fingers should be placed so tweens can play at their own speed, hitting the right notes at the right time. As players learn, they can select from rock songs of increasing difficulty, and even change the guitar’s sound to ‘metal,’ ‘punk,’ ‘digital,’ or ‘indie.’ Featuring authentic guitar sounds and classic “Gibson” styling, the POWER TOUR Electric Guitar boasts lots of really cool guitar features including strum bar, palm mute bar, input/output jacks, touch sensors, multicolored LED lights and dual function knobs. Tweens have never rocked this hard, this easy! Four “AA” batteries are required but not included. (Approximate retail price: $69.99; Ages 10 years & up; Available: August 2007)
What’s black and white and cool all over? I-CY, the performing penguin! The newest – and ‘chillest’ – interactive music companion in the popular I-DOG family, I-CY loves to ‘dive’ into music of all kinds: rock, punk, rap, hip-hop and more! Using the included dual ended cable, plug I-CY into the headphone jack of any standard music system and music will broadcast through a built-in speaker. Whether users plug I-CY into a hand-held music system or simply sit it in front of a speaker I-CY will flap its flippers and rock side to side with the rhythm of the song. Watch I-CY’s belly light up with delight as it moves and grooves to the music. To keep this penguin pal happy and groovin’ give it lots of music and interaction – but watch out, you can make I-CY mad (and mute your music) by pressing its tail! Three AAA batteries are required, but not included. (Approximate retail price $19.99; Ages 8 years & up; Available: Spring 2007)

Jan 2007 Las Vegas Consumer electronics Show: From boom boxes to vacuums, robots making presence known

January 9, 2007
Associated Press
Some of the stars yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas were (from top) Yujin Robot's iRobi, Erector's spy robot, Spyke, and the Bioloid Puppy by Robotis Co.
LAS VEGAS – A shiny black plastic gizmo – shaped like a football with mushroom caps on either end – cranks out music and then rocks out to its own tunes, twisting and spinning its mushroom wheels around the floor of the Consumer Electronics Show, which opened yesterday.
Dubbed Miuro, the autonomous boom box can learn the floor plan to a house and roll from room to room to serve as a whole-home alarm clock, or it can entertain as a dancing sound system.
On a nearby table, a cute little fellow named PLEN is learning to roller skate. The 9-inch-tall robot is receiving programming instructions, via Bluetooth signals from a nearby cell phone, that send him skating to the edge of the table and back.
Across the aisle, iRobi flashes an LED smile, apparently pleased with his ability to provide recipes, play games and run educational programs.
Welcome to the dawn of the home-robot era in America. This Consumer Robotics Tech Zone at the country's largest gadget expo is one sign that the autonomous gadgets are arriving.
At least a dozen companies are demonstrating prototypes and real products. Some, like PLEN, are expensive toys. The programmable robot is not yet available in the United States, but would sell for about $2,500 if and when it is distributed here, its manufacturer says.
A less expensive toy, Spyke, is a build-it-yourself robot from Erector. A WiFi-controlled “spy robot,” Spyke responds to commands from a Web page and includes a video Web camera, speakers, a microphone and the ability to serve as an Internet phone.
The toy is expected to be available this summer at a price of $269.
Other robots on display are kits for hobbyists and classrooms, or entertainment devices that play music, games and movies. Still others, like iRobi, are designed to be automated companions that make a contribution to a household.

Hasbro Music Penguin Called IC-Y Technology News, <b>Electronics</b> Buy Guide and Gadget Review


After the iDog, iCat and iFish it of course was time for Hasbro to introduce a penguin - his name is IC-Y.

The design is very extremely minimalist and I find the penguin actually not that cute when comparing it to the iDog.

I-CY can flap his flippers and put on some light show. Apparently I-CY does not appreciate it when you flick his tail.
Hasbro (Tiger Electronics) will introduce IC-Y in March.

Lightborne Designs & Animates New Campaign for Hasbro

Lightborne, a production and design collective, recently wrapped a campaign to promote the latest interactive music toys from the Hasbro Tiger Electronics division: I-DOG, I-CAT and I-FISH.

Using a fusion of graphic design and animation, Lightborne worked closely with ad agency Wondergroup to make these robotic 'pets' come to life.

The spots for I-DOG, I-CAT and I-FISH showcase the toys' unique abilities to plug into any portable MP3 player or listen to any type of stereo system, and move and groove to the music.

Their mood changes with the music they hear, displaying different colored LEDs and expressive movements.

During the spots dynamic graphics and colorful dots interact with the electronic pets, which are set against a white background.

The commercials conclude with the catchy and very fitting taglines, 'Cat scratchin' the beat,' 'Beggin' for the beat,' and 'Swimmin' in waves of music.'

The goal with the campaign was to introduce the new toys and show their personalities in an energetic manner.
