The remote control required 4x AA batteries.

Meet the future. Your own personal robot!

The computer unit was also completely seperate from the Omnibot, even having a dedicated speaker. The remote control allowed you to move the Omnibot forward, backward, left, and right. You could also talk through the remote's in built microphone and broadcast it through Omnibot's integrated speaker, and play built in "robot sounds". 

Original price

The original retail price was $250 USD (which is roughly $650 USD in 2021 money).

Features

The Omnibot 5402 was about a foot tall with a:

  • built-in cassette player for both music and programming
  • RC remote control
  • built in microcomputer with lock
  • programming capabilities

After the initial launch, an 'Omnibot MKII" with dedicated motor ports on the back for direct control was released.

Today, the Omnibot 5402 is (still!) relatively easy to find on eBay, and prices asked range from $50 (not tested) to a whopping $999 (prototypes).
