Brian the Brain is a talking buddy who’s full of facts and features – but is he full of fun? Find out with our Brian the Brain review!

Brian the Brain looks like something that crawled out of a creepy Halloween movie, but what is he really? Brian's a talking robot buddy with enough artificial intelligence to chat, tell jokes, help you with your homework and more! He's also about 2 feet tall and looks wicked with his googly eyes and brain that lights up with freaky colors when he's talking or thinking (he can do a lot of thinking)! Brian's giant brain is loaded with more than 10,000 facts from the Encyclopedia Britannica as well as a bunch of voice-recognition software, jokes, seven different games, an alarm clock and even a personal organizer so you don't forget to fake sick when you have a math test!

On top of all that stuff, Brian can hook up an mp3 player to play your tunes and plug into a phone line and make phone calls for you. Brian also has a motion sensor and a password system so if he's chilling in your room and someone comes in he'll get all "Hey, who's that?" at them and sound an alarm if they're a stranger. There are only two problems with Brian the Brain, the first is that he's a battery powered gizmo that doesn't move around, but you still can't plug him into the wall! His voice recognition is weak too. Sometimes you'll say "What time is it?" and he'll answer "The president of Uruguay is Tabaré Vázquez." unless you keep him in a quiet room and talk really carefully.

Brian's flaws keep him from being a slam-dunk of awesomeness but he's still great fun and full of handy information. He really can help you do your homework and even comes with a free subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica online!

    I really agree with --Kat-- when she says she's bored of seeing "First to #" and "Last one to say "Etc" wins" threads. She decided to make a thread about Boys vs Girls thread which is pretty smart! So here it is, a game where different continents have to say a country from their Continent. You keep going until someone repeats a country someone had already said, then they're out. Who's gonna be the last one standing? Rules: -Please don't post more than one country per person because it gives less chances for other people in your Continent to post a country. -Don't post unnecessary things, stay on the game's subject. -This is only for fun. The winning Continent, please don't boast to other people. In America, States can be said as a country as well. That's it, have fun!
