RobotGalaxy lets kids tinker with characters

Guess the next slew of virtual worlds we’ll see are heavily driven by story, mostly story worlds in the form of MMOs. But one investment caught Wagner James Au‘s eye, RobotGalaxy.

I’d say the third quarter investment with the most promise is RobotGalaxy, a virtual world aimed at boys, who’ll be able to buy customized real robots in stores, then hook them up to their computers (and the world) via a USB cable.

Unfortunately RobotGalaxy isn’t out yet so I can’t see if customizing the robots also means customizing the story. But I guess just being able to tweak the character in a story is at least a start.
