Blu-Bot: Intelligent Bluetooth Robot - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Silverlit.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
For the crowd who likes gadgets and technology, a great Christmas gift would be the Blu-Bot: Intelligent Bluetooth Robot by Silverlit.  It's a high-tech toy with lots of delightful features that can be used with or without an app. 
 
To first use Blu-Bot you need to charge the robot by connecting the USB cable from the charging socket to the computer.  The USB cable is included with the package but the robot is not much use for any play without a computer.  An LED light will indicate when the robot is charged.  The robot can operate for approximately 60 minutes per play time.
 
When using the robot manually, there are three play modes to choose from - Program mode, Dance mode, and Guard mode.   

In Program mode, the robot can be directed to move its head and feet in different directions.
In Dance Mode, the robot will dance one of three preprogrammed dances.  One of them is the Moonwalk.  In Guard mode, an alarm will be activated and the Blu-Bot will move around when an intruder within a 3 feet range is detected.

Blu-Bot has twenty different facial expressions, and will automatically turn a different direction to avoid obstacles.  When one Blu-bot is in the vicinity of another, they will greet each other with a special message.
To download the app, you have to turn on your mobile device and download the Blu-Bot app in the Google Play store.  By using the app, you can drag and drop icons to move the robot.  You can also listen to pre-recorded messages, and record your own voice.  Another feature is a voice change comand that allows you to change the voice of the robot.  Blu-Bot can be played without the app, but that gives extra exciting features.
 
  We've played with the robot in both modes but mostly use it in the manual mode.  Blu-Bot is interactive and engaging.
 
Win It!
 
One person will win a Blu-Bot: Intelligent Bluetooth Robot.

As I sat there imagining what I could use this for, an idea came to mind. It seems with my disability it's sure to be something I would put to a great purpose. It keeps going, as I planned to develop an idea that will help others in that of when they need aid!Then I would be the primary person to play with the robot till it becomes a success; sometimes, when I'm not playing with it I plan to share the opportunity with others so they can maybe one day get one for themself!
