ubtech robots anyone?

Hi

Just came across these.
Did a search on forum and nothing, and yet I can't believe they gone un-noticed.
https://www.ubtrobot.com/products/buzzbot-muttbot-kit?ls=en
Hundred bucks, Six servos, controller, batteries, phone ap, blockly like language.
Seems to be a few for auction on ebay currently less than $20.
Nice to make a prop controller :)

Anyone?

    Perhaps some concerns about children/player privacy did affected the "net value" of the product...

    Children!!! Children!!! far too good for their short attention spans:) - chuck the controller and ap away and replace with a prop!

    I've been watching these at CES every year, a friend of mine worked there for a while. Lots of drama at that company. The robots are also pretty dramatic, and the well-done app shows clearly how to build & use their canned routines. Kind of a small ecosystem (and closed source IIRC) as delivered, but there is a hackers' kit available.
