Tomy Corp Nov 2007 i-SOBOT debuts without TV spots - Orange County Register

With no plans to spend a penny on TV commercials, Santa Ana's Tomy Corp. is betting its new i-SOBOT will capture the hearts and wallets of Americans and become one of the hottest toys this holiday.
The $300 robot, being unveiled today, has gained a following thanks to a strategic Internet campaign. Tomy's marketing gurus targeted blogs and Web sites. Popular gadget sites, such as Engadget and Gizmodo, have been keeping tabs on its progress all year. I-SOBOT even has a MySpace page with 161 friends.
But it's not just the geek community that's curious. The 6.5-inch, bipedal mechanical creature attracted retail attention as well. Neiman Marcus won the rights to sell i-SOBOT exclusively in September before other retailers. Other stores, including Amazon and eToys, began taking pre-orders last month and have since asked Tomy for more after selling out of initial allotments. Sharper Image stores are featuring it as one of its top tech toys.
Not bad for a company that previously made only toys for toddlers.
'Tomy's always been known as a preschool toy company, but we've been expanding into electronics,' said Sandra Leo, Tomy's senior marketing manager. 'We really had to look at the best way to market (i-SOBOT). We wanted to do more untraditional marketing, like blogs, MySpace and robot fans.'
Even at the official news conference this afternoon, Tomy is testing a new tactic. It's inviting consumers not only to listen to the Webcast but ask questions at tomy-usa.com/mediaroom. If the campaign works, it will save Tomy a lot of money.
'Usually, traditional marketing with TV can be a couple of million of dollars depending on the campaign,' Leo said. 'Based on the nontraditional marketing approach TOMY is taking by reaching consumers through limited print, online, word of mouth, and the news conference, TOMY will spend approximately between $200,000 to $400,000 – much less than traditional marketing with TV.'
Japanese parent Tomy Co. Ltd. spent two years developing i-SOBOT. An American version was tweaked for the U.S. consumer. Leo said the local office gave it a sense of humor. i-SOBOT will crack jokes, tell you that you smell funny, act drunk and imitate Dirty Harry's infamous line 'Go ahead, make my day.'
American consumers are getting their hands on i-SOBOT before the Japanese. Tomy's local office wanted the robot in time for Christmas. Retailers in Japan don't depend on the holiday season as much as U.S. retailers. So the Omnibot, as it's called in Japan, will hit stores there a month later.
Tomy didn't have to do too much marketing. The buzz about i-SOBOT is that it's a bipedal robot that comes pre-assembled and ready to play with. And it doesn't cost thousands of dollars.
The diminutive i-SOBOT is packed with technology: 17 custom-developed servo motors, 19 integrated circuit chips, a gyro-sensor, two LEDs and software. It sings, dances, does somersaults and karate chops, plays air guitar and balances on one leg. Using an infrared remote control, users can tell the i-SOBOT what to do by typing in up to 200 preprogrammed actions.
'We're not calling it a toy. It's more of an electronics gadget,' Leo said.
Whether consumers will bite on the $300-plus price tag remains to be seen.

Takara Tomy Sept 2007 Transformers Music Label products
Takara Tomy, with its Transformers Music Label products, is sticking closely to the original character designs to create functional toys that hit the nostalgia bone hard. So what we have here is, ostensibly, an MP3 player, a set of iPod speakers and a pair of headphones. But is there more to them than meets the eye? Soundwave was always the coolest Transformer. A spy for the evil Decepticons, he transformed from a giant robot into a tiny tape deck, speaking in ice-cool vocoded monotone and dispensing microcassette robots that he carried kangaroolike in the tape tray in his chest. But time has been unkind to Soundwave. Tapes were made obsolete by CDs, MiniDiscs and DAT, with MP3 ultimately proving the format of choice for music fans on the move. In the new movie, Soundwave changed utterly, both in form (he is now a boom box) and function (he clunks around and squeals far too noisily to be a convincing spy, and seems to have graduated from the Jar Jar Binks school of subtlety). A relief, then, that this toy recaptures those 1980s glory days. Available both in his original blue color and an iPod-inspired white makeover, this Soundwave figure looks just like the one you had all those years ago, but with one crucial difference: It actually works as a music player. The 'tape tray' takes a Mini SD card (officially up to 1 gigabyte, although my 2-GB chip worked fine), from which Soundwave plays MP3s. A 2-GB chip holds around 20 albums at 320 kbps. Buttons on Soundwave's chest offer play/pause, volume and track skip functions, and that's your lot. There is no display screen, but that hasn't stopped Apple's iPod Shuffle from being immensely popular. As for the sound quality, it is surprisingly full, with a beefy bass response and just a little clipping at higher volumes. The boxed earphones sound reasonable, although I had better results with my own earphones. In place of Energon cubes, Soundwave is powered by a single type 4/AAA battery, which lasts around six hours. However, two things conspire to make Soundwave a little less than portable. Unlike the original (nonfunctional) toy, there is no belt clip — a must for a chunky player such as this — and the battery hatch is accessed with a screwdriver, hardly ideal for replacing on the move. But by far the worst design flaw is Soundwave's awful memory. Every time you switch him on, he will play tracks from the first folder on the Mini SD chip, rather than remembering where you had gotten up to last time. This is compounded by the fact that when you leave him paused for around a minute, he will switch himself off. In other words, when you pause your music to pay for something at HMV, you will have to navigate one track at a time (there is no folder-skip function) to where you had left off. Finally, some album folders were skipped altogether during playback, which is baffling.

Tomy Sept 2007 Is Tomy's i-Sobot a Robosapien killer?

iPod or i-Sobot? For just a little bit more than an 80GB iPod Classic, you can now preorder Tomy's tiny-but-impressive bipedal robot on Amazon.com.
src=http://i.i.com.com/cnwk.1d/i/bto/20070918/i_sobot_270x270.jpg
The 6.5-inch tall, $300 i-Sobot has already been available in Japan for a while, and it's slated to hit U.S. stores in October.
The miniature robot uses three AAA batteries to power the 17 servo motors for its joints and limbs, three separate CPUs to control its voice and movement, and two gyroscopic sensors, which give it a pretty good sense of balance. The robot can perform such nimble actions as standing on one leg and doing the wave, doing somersaults, and busting out a few push-ups.
i-Sobot has a few modes, as well: a voice-command mode, in which it responds to 10 spoken commands; a programmable mode, where you can string up to 80 movements in a row; and a remote-control mode, where you just move it with the included controller.
Words don't really do it as much justice as Tomy's demo video and various YouTube clips do. Take a look at i-Sobot in action.
