Remember that episode where Homer is mistaken for a pilot, and aimlessly presses buttons on the plane’s dashboard in hopes of blundering his way through the situation?

Playing with HomerSapien is exactly like that.

Released around the time of the movie, this licensed version of WowWee’s RoboSapien looks like it could do some really cool things – if I could only figure out how it works.

He walks, he talks, he picks stuff up (after much trial-and-error), he spooks your dogs. Either way, the real fun is trying to figure it all out. Mine lives on the floor, since I’m not 100% convinced it doesn’t move around by itself at night.

WowWee have since retired this model, but it still does the rounds of eBay pretty regularly. Just make sure you shop around for it: I got mine for ten bucks at a second-hand store, but some hopefuls online are asking for hundreds.
