What is the difference between the Miposaur and Zoomer Dino? Basically both products are dino toy that can move use a self balance on two wheels, control use gesture sense and hand gesture command recognition, have personality and mood changes.
However, there are some differences such as the appearance, dinos app and the Miposaur comes with the trackball (The TrackBall is equiped with BeaconSense technology, which means MiPosaur can track and follow the ball around). From it appearance the Zoomer Dino more look like real dinosaur rather than Miposaur.

MiPosaur is a prehistoric robotic pet toy, that is filled with some pretty amazing futuristic technology, that you can buy today. MiPosaur can be controlled via hand gestures, the supplied ball or even via an app for iOS or Android, but it’s equally happy to roam around and explore its surroundings. MiPosaur isn’t trying too hard look like the animal it mimics. Though, it taking obvious inspiration from the raptors in Jurassic Park.
There are numerous ways to play and interact with MiPosaur:
1.We can use hand gestures (gesture sense) to make MiPosaur move around.
2. The second way to control MiPosaur is with the Beacon Sense trackball. This is a blast and provides a very pet like experience. It is the trackball that takes MiPosaur from remote controlled robot dino to fully interactive, unpredictable and playful pet.
3.The third way to control MiPosaur is via the app. The app works with iOS (8.0 or later) and Android phones or tablets. The app allows you to drive MiPosaur around, make him/her dance, feed MiPosaur and battle.

- Uses 4 AA Batteries for MiPosaur and 4 AAA Batteries for the Trackball
Flip the MiPosaur over and you’ll find the battery compartment for 4 AA; it’s protected by 3 crosshead screws. On MiPosaur’s back there is an LED that changes colour depending on robo-dino’s mood. Orange means excited, blue curious and red annoyed, with each emotion affecting how likely the MiPosaur is to respond to your commands. At the bottom of each foot is a wheel upon which it balances through the use of gyros – much like a Segway.
The other major element of MiPosaur is the trackball, which features a six-way mode dial, eight IR senders, an on/off switch and a status LED. It takes four AAA batteries, held in by a further two screws – keep your toolbox handy. MiPosaur trackball has six different modes accessible via a dial on the ball itself: Food, Dance, Beat Box, Leash, Ball, and Teddy Bear.
By far the most interesting of those are Leash and Ball. The former creates a virtual piece of string between the trackball and MiPosaur, so that your robo-friend follows you around.
MiPosaur chases the ball around and knocks it about, acting like a whizz-wheeling puppy, and it can even have a little kickabout with you. It’s very cool, but requires plenty of room.
Shaking the ball in Dance mode makes MiPosaur spin and pop around like a disco diva to some dodgy techno, while Beat Box makes it spew out a load of robo-sonics and the odd growl whenever it gets near the ball.
Food enables you to virtually feed the MiPosaur using the ball, resulting in some interesting sound effects when it chows down. Teddy Bear turns the ball into the MiPosaur’s new favourite toy that it doesn’t want to part with.
If that lot isn’t enough to keep you entertained, you can download the MiPosaur app for iOS or Android. The app enables your phone to connect to the MiPosaur over Bluetooth, so you can remotely control it entirely from your touchscreen. You can also feed it a variety of imaginary snacks by swiping them up off the top of the screen, and instruct the MiPosaur to take a particular path by drawing the route on the screen with your finger.
