Meet Meccanoid G15 the short one!

Meccano show off the little guy at the INYTF
Much interest was generated at the CES show in Las Vegas last month when Spin Master announced the new Meccano Meccanoid G15 KS personal robot, see HERE. Yesterday (Saturday) they introduced the smaller version of the robot to the public at the International New York Toy Fair (INYTF). The new guy, simply called G15, is a shorter version of the larger robot announced last month. G15 has fewer servos and not so many building parts. However priced at roughly half the price of the KS (Kid Size) version he represents good value for money, especially for the Meccano builder looking to incorporate the programmability into traditional Meccano models.

The street-price in the UK, initially, seems to be around £350.00 for the KS and a shade over half that for the little guy at around £180.00. Meccanoid should start to appear in the shops from August 2015.
