Mechatar combat toy robots from iLoveRobots combine the technology of online gaming and real-world remote controlled toys.  Each Mechatar has an online presence that evolves through online and real life battles and missions.  This means that each Mechatar robot is an individual entity with unique experiences that make it different from any other.

Read a review of Mechatar robots at the Wired GeekDad blog.  According to GeekDad blogger Tony Sims, iLoveRobots currently makes some of the best robot toys on the market.  The company founders gained their experience at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute and have successfully brought work in adaptive robotics to the commercial market.
