Nose to toes, the Roboraptor is 81cm long and sports a fierce grin. Where the Robosapien would wave and nod, the Roboraptor looks like it wants to tear your arm off. It’s sure to be a hit with the kids.

Robotics has come a long way since last year. The Roboraptor has three behaviour settings - playful, cautious and hunter. Set it to playful and he’ll nuzzle and coo when you put your face near his. Try it on in hunter mode and you could lose an eye.

You can leave Roboraptor to guard a particular area, or in remote control mode so he’s at your beck and call, or just let him do his own thing in free-roam mode. If you ignore him long enough he’ll get bored and switch himself over to free roaming anyway and go off looking for some baby birds to torment or a Robosapien to torture.

You can even lead the Roboraptor around by tracing a path using the remote control’s laser beam. Or you can ignore the remote altogether and just poke him and watch him dance - oh, how he can dance. He can also waddle, hunt and run so make sure you’re a safe distance away before taunting him.
