Mego 2 XL returning . Conversational AI learning robot for kids.

Techstination feature for Friday, February 2, 2024

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Just about 45 years ago a toy robot called Mego 2 XL was one of the hottest things around.   It featured interactive play using eight track tapes.   And now Mego is back…with a new 2 XL robot….or maybe we should say cobot…this time with ability to speak more than forty languages and converse using AI.   There are lots of parental safeguards.  President Bruce Katz..

“It’s not like an Alexa where you ask it a question and it just gives you an answer.  It truly becomes a companion to the child, it has short and long term memory.”

Check out our full interview online…for a demo and you’ll get a glimpse of the original Mego 2 XL too.  Look for the new Mego 2 XL to be in stores by early spring.
