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!

    If I could jump and swim and help, yeah I would! But if I can't, I would start running. FOR HELP. The only logical thing I can think of! Do you think this is a beautiful world?
