Combat Creatures introduced WiFi controllable remote toys called Attacknids . Introduced in 2012, the toys have been a big hit and have been featured on the David Letterman show, Fox News, and many gadget shows.
The units can be armed with Nerf missiles, Ping Pong ball cannon, flying disk ammo and roving crab-walk shields, and provide some of the thrills of the old Comedy Central Battlebot series at an affordable price.
I sat down and talked with Cobi about Dream Bots and Whee Me. Whee Me is a massage robot that helps relax the back, buttocks and legs. Whee Me can work its way around the back without falling off. The wheels, tentacles lightly touch the body to bring out relaxing feelings. Whee Me also will vibrate to loosen muscles and relax you.
Dream Bots is a company that makes items such as Whee Me.

Built on Microsoft’s Windows 7 with a touch screen, the user can access simple functions such as playing music or making a voip call.
