How it works
The makers at Really Rad Robots created a mini-robot that becomes your best friend. Named MiBro because he’s your “bro”, this robot can dance, make sounds, play soccer, and even spy on your friends and family. He stands only a few inches tall, but the amount of fun you can have with this robot is huge. He runs on batteries and with his wireless remote, you can talk and listen through MiBro from anywhere in the house. He can run obstacle courses and carry a tray as you get him to soar around the house getting things done. Whether you are playing by yourself or with a group of friends, MiBro is a fun little guy to have around who makes playing fun.
The Remote Control
Along the top of the remote control is a slide button that allows MiBro to play certain sounds. There is the wind function that allows MiBro to make gross body noises that make everyone laugh. There is the blaster gun setting that lets MiBro make the sound of a laser blaster, and the soccer ball setting has MiBro playing sounds that are typically found at sporting events like cheering fans and blowing whistles.
There is a second slide button along the top of the remote control that manipulates MiBro’s voice. The smiley face is the normal speaking voice, the robot face is a more robotic sounding voice, and the squished face is the high pitched voice. Depending on what setting you choose depends on how MiBro’s voice will sound when you are playing with him.
Underneath the first slide button are two white square buttons. The first has a music note on it, and that function gets MiBro to dance, and the second button has a speaker on it, and when that button is pressed the sound you have chosen from the slide button (the body noise, the gun blaster, or the soccer ball) will be played out of MiBro.
Underneath the second slide button are two other white square buttons and those buttons are a speaking and a listening button. One allows you to speak through MiBro in MiBro’s voice, while the listening button allows you to listen in on other people’s conversations.
The other remaining buttons on the remote control make MiBro move whether it’s forward and backward, side to side, or around in a circle.
On the face of the controller is the speaker that allows you to listen to sounds coming from MiBro and a microphone so that you can speak into the controller and have your voice come out of MiBro.
The remote control has an antenna that must be pointed at MiBro in order for him to receive the commands from the controller.
On top of MiBro’s head is the microphone so that he can pick up other people’s conversations and a speaker where your voice can come out when you speak into the remote control.
The most important button on MiBro is right in the front underneath his face. That button puts him into spy mode where you can move him around the house without him making any noise so that you can successfully spy on other people.
On the back of MiBro is the same exact switch. The middle setting is off while channel one is to the left and channel two is to the right. Whatever channel MiBro is on should be the same channel that remote control is on and when they are synced, MiBro will come alive and start talking and moving.
Installing the Batteries
To install the batteries in the remote control you have to unscrew the back of the remote to open the battery door. You will need a small Phillips head screwdriver similar to an eyeglass screwdriver.
The batteries for MiBro are installed the same way. Unscrew the battery door on the back of MiBro to install the batteries.
The other accessory is a laser blaster gun. When this accessory is placed into his hand, you can use the laser gun sound effect on your remote and it will sound like MiBro is blasting lasers as he rolls through the house.
The final accessory is the soccer ball and soccer net. Place the ball in front of MiBro and let him roll into the ball as he heads for the net. You can see how many goals MiBro can make in a certain amount of time while using the sports sound effect the entire time. The net has a double function because you can raise MiBro’s arms over his head and place the net in his hands over his head like a tray, and then MiBro becomes your own personal butler as he can carry snacks and toys around for you wherever you are going or bring snacks and toys to your family and friends and you won’t even have to get off the couch.
Pranking and Tricks
If you want to scare your family or friends, you can quietly roll MiBro into the next room and speak through the microphone on the remote control and your voice will carry through the speaker on MiBro’s head. Your voice will come through as MiBro’s voice, and by using the voice function on the remote, you can choose whether you want your voice to sound like MiBro’s normal voice, a more robotic voice, or a high pitched squealing voice.
