They probably didn't sell enough to justify their operations.

The entertainment/hobby walker robot market is very small probably less than $100m including home-brew motor controlers and excluding WowWee stuff (80+% of it in Japan).

WowWee - RoboSapien - 2.5m units, $100, 2 years
i-cybie - Silverlit - 500k units, $250, 5 years
Aibo - Sony - 150k units, $2000, 6 years
KHR-1 - Kondo - 3000 units, $1500, 1 year
RoboNova - Hitec - 500 units, $1100, 3 months
Boiloid - Robotis - hundreds of units, $1000, 3 months
Pirkus - JinSato - ? units - $2200, 6 months
Robovie - Vstone - ? units - $900 - 8 months
Hexapod - Lynxmotion - many 1000s units - $500 - 10 years
Speecys -- ? units - $7000 - 6 months
nuvo $5000....

YDH-EZA - ItoReinetsu - ? units, $5000, 2 years

I wonder how many units would a decent $500 humanoid sell :?:
