Games2U Children's Entertainment and Video Game Franchise Delivers World’s First Kid-Driven Robot | Games2U Children's Entertainment and Video Game Franchise Delivers World’s First Kid-Driven Robot. The U:bot™, Where You Become The Robot.

AUSTIN, TX – Imagine a child transforming themselves into a towering green robot in front of all their friends. From the simple controls of a joystick inside, the child can shift to the side, spin in circles, make laser sounds and beam lights and fog into the crowd.

For kids across America who are mesmerized by robots, a national company has announced today the introduction of the world’s first U:bot™ in which the kids become the robot! Games2U Entertainment, a national franchise, is going where no games have gone before – delivering the hottest video games and the most out-there, never-seen-before interactive experiences, literally right to your doorstep. U:bot™ is the most recent invention in the Games2U lineup, which includes a human gyroscope, an ultra-high tech laser tag game, giant hamster balls and more. 

The U:bot™ is a motorized 6-foot, 8-inch tall, sci-fi movie inspired, patented robot that allows participants to climb inside and fully control the device from within. The U:bot’s™ drive controls allow it to go straight, back, right, left and pivot in 360-degree circles. There are also buttons inside for laser effects, synchronized blinking lights and a fog machine. Even more, once inside the U:bot™, there’s a microphone hooked up to a voice modulation system, so a child’s voice is translated into “robot-speak”.  This bigger-than-life machine also features a color monitor and speaker in the chest.

“The U:bot really embodies the core of what Games2U Entertainment is about – the ultimate party or event experience” said David Pikoff, co-founder of Austin, TX-based Games2U. “We will continue to innovate and invent new games, so there’s always a new reason to have a Games2U event or party.”

The U:bot™ is the latest creation from Games2U Entertainment, a hot franchise founded by brothers David and Stuart Pikoff, now in 20 states.  The platform for the concept is Games2U’s specialized vehicles, which are tricked-out with video games, flat screen TVs, surround sound, laser tag, giant inflatable human hamster balls and air cannons, all delivered straight to the consumer.

The Pikoffs started franchising Games2U Entertainment in 2007 and to date the company has grown to almost 80 locations in 20 states. Games2U’s R&D Department is continually developing interactive, break-through inventions that will be the “wow” factor at parties and events. Based on the current rate of inquiries, co-founders and brothers David and Stuart Pikoff expect to sell at least 100 more franchises by the end of 2009.

After the U:bot’s™ initial launch in Texas, the patented robot will go into mass production immediately and be available exclusively through Games2U franchisees.
