Control Mip 'Jedi-style' with any hand motion or use the free Bluetooth app to drive MiP around. MiP's also has an immersive personality that will captivate you as it loves to have fun and lives for your appreciation. Show it some praise and MiP will react through motion, sound and it's LED eyes. Be unkind and MiP will be one unhappy little robot.

With games you can play with your Apple or Android

device there’s loads of fun extra features to add to MiP’s repertoire. Using the app you can control MiP remotely by drawing a path for it to follow, drive, race, battle with other MiPs and much more. Teach MiP to dance to the music on your smartphone and get it to perform tricks to your heart's delight. Whatever you ask MiP to do it will obey as it's inquisitive nature means that there's endless fun to be enjoyed.

Jonathan Elvidge, MD of RED5 - The Ultimate Gadget Shop, leading high-street innovative gift retailer said: "Every once in a while, something new comes along which is so far advanced compared to what is already available, it completely changes the game. Say hello to MiP. For those of us that love the idea of a robot companion that can propel itself at speed, leaving far behind the lumbering zombie steps of everything else that has gone before, then you are in for a treat. At RED5 it is our mission to search out the latest ground-breaking affordable tech and bring it to you first, and with the help of the Gadget Show Live, which is the perfect launch platform for consumer tech, that is exactly what we are going to do. We are proud to be able to offer visitors to GSL the first chance to see, hold and play with MiP, and because RED5 will be first in the UK to get hold of MiP, we can ensure GSL visitors will be amongst the first to get hold of one too."
