“Mechatars are a new, interactive play experience iLove Robots call “blended reality.” Brand-new and launching this fall, Mechatars combines the best of online gaming and RC robotic toys by connecting the physical world and online world through cloud computing.”
C was thrilled when he learned that a Mechatar was on it’s way to our house. Each day the excitement building. So of course when it arrived it had to be played with right then! He received Kodar (perfect since Blue is his favorite color). Right off I was impressed by how he could play with it right out of the box. Once we turned it on it connected automatically to the remote. He had fun playing with his Mechatar Remote Controlled Robot then it was time to connect it to the computer so he could load it with weapons. It easily connects to the computer through a USB port. The first time you connect it, it prompts you to download the software that is needed. Once that is done it took us to Mechatars.com were we created a user account.
He said really liked that there was an tutorial that guided him through the online play, it really helped him a lot. He likes that he can connect with other Mechatars of his friends and can’t wait for his friends to get one (you must know their ID in order to connect).
He has been having so much fun playing with his Mechatar both online and off. When he is online he collects weapons and battles. He said he is getting pretty good at figuring out what weapons to use at certain times. He has spent hours on it so I’m sure he has 🙂 Offline it is fun to see him play and get missions. The Mechatar talks to him in mission mode and he has a lot of fun playing that. He likes that each mission he completes gets him badges. He can’t wait until his friends get Mechatars and then he can battle them offline robot to robot. Even 4 year old Bug is enjoying the offline fun with the Mechatar.
Mechatars are available at Target, Radio Shack, Amazon, Toys R’Us.
