We’re less than two months away from the North American Internal Toy Fair in New York City, where we get to see the fun, new product lines from companies this year—yes, including the holiday season! But, we’re getting a sneak peek at WowWee’s new toys for the year for their International Consumer Electronics Show debut this week in Las Vegas, from January 6 to 9.

WowWee is taking artificially intelligent robotic play to new heights—literally—and has three amazing tech toys coming out throughout the year. Check out some of the awesome products:


CHiP(TM), the advanced AI robotic dog coming in 2016 by WowWee. (PRNewsFoto/WowWee)CHiP, or Canine Home Intelligent Pet, is the ultimate AI Robotic Dog based on new Mechatronics, the latest in a combination of wireless technology, telecommunications engineering, and a suite of advanced sensors. CHiP recognizes its master and responds to commands using the included SmartBand and a rechargeable wearable controller. Also, CHiP plays fetch and fun games with the SmartBall, interacting in all the ways a real dog would, including playing soccer with you! CHiP will also know when it’s time to head to its special SmartBed and recharge.

R.E.V. Air

Elevate Your Game with R.E.V. AIR(TM), the latest in Robotic Enhanced Vehicles and Battle by WowWee coming 2016! (PRNewsFoto/WowWee)WowWee’s newest addition to last year’s Robotic Enhanced Vehicle battle-game platform is R.E.V. Air. Featuring the latest technologies in both Beaconsense Artificial Intelligence and Flight Control Systems, the app-based flight experience allows the player to control a flying quadcopter to battle an AI ground vehicle, or conversely to have an AI quadcopter chase a vehicle with the capability to attack, fire virtual missiles, and swarm at the R.E.V. vehicle.


Play, Dance, and Fly with LUMI(TM), the new gaming drone with a personality all its own by WowWee. (PRNewsFoto/WowWee)LUMI combines drone gaming and takes the fuss out of flying an indoor quadcopter. LUMI can literally fly itself while you play, direct, and command it using the app-based gameplay. With any smart device, users can select motions, maneuvers, stunts, or take control and fly with ease. Various game modes include challenging the player to follow sequences of flashing lights and music while LUMI flies and dances in the air, reacting to your performance.
