The Kingii Dragon Robot from OWI is modeled after the frilled lizards of Australia, with colorful neck frills and a long, green tail. The robot features a two-mode, infrared sensor. Set to the escape mode, Kingii will act shocked when it detects something in its path, by opening its mouth, displaying its frill, and lighting up its eyes before scurrying away. In its more approachable mode, the robot will follow a hand or object.

The robot runs on 4 AAA batteries and two wheels. Four little legs move frantically as it rolls along.

Kingii is slated for release in late April 2015, with a list price of $41.95.
