Briefly snuck away from writing today and bought another robot dog. I felt a bit guilty about not being sat at a keyboard all the time, but not about buying the dog, which was half price and is really good. The best part is the Remote Control, which is absolutely huge. Wrex is not really a proper piece of Artificial Intelligence, in that you mostly have to steer him around by hand. He does have an “off the leash” mode which is quite fun, along with a keypad on the back you can use to re-program him. He has a wide repertoire of remarks and special actions which are pretty amusing.
