Lizard King Robot is modeled after Australian Frilled Lizards. When these lizards are surprised or threatened they exhibit a pretty spectacular display. First it's the wide open, hissing mouth with sharp little canine teeth. Then comes the big reveal, the neck frills jump from limp to frightening in a snap. This aggressive behavior is truly a bluff and if you don't run away, the lizard will.
The Lizard King Robot functions with two AI modes, "Chase" and "Elude". With the 2 mode switch, when the infrared (IR) sensor is activated in the Elude mode, the Lizard King Robot will act startled. The frill will deploy, jaws gape and LED eyes blaze all before scurrying away to a safe distance. When the IR sensor is activated in the Chase mode, your Lizard King Robot will bluff the threat, you, with an energetic frill display. If your Lizard King Robot does not sense danger it will follow you like a puppy.
