It seems Excalibur announced it at CES 2006. If you look at the video here:

http://www.hometoys.com/video/index.htm

They preview some of the toys released there and towards the end they show it very briefly, for just a couple of seconds, but you can really see it is a Mirage.
I'm guessing they didn't have a working prototype to display at the show and used the Mirage!

But on the video it was a mirage, or?

Yes, you're right! On the video you can see the round, white buttons of the Mirage; these on Steve's picture look different!


well watched!

keep your eyes wide open,
Robert

P.S.: I would like to know, what program the real robot has (and which CPU)
Any ideas?

Steve has put this photo of the to-be-released Excalibur Robot in his album :-



The final version may have wheels and a spoiler. 

Burning rubber regards
