There are many kits on the market today that can help you build your own personal robot. Of course these little machines are generally very simple and not likely to be able to do anything cool like fetch drinks or protect your home from invaders. The ROBOTIS Bioloid Premium Kit won’t help you build a Terminator either but it gets a bit closer to it.
The Bioloid is a much more advanced robotics kit than what is usually on the market. This isn’t meant to be thrown together in one sitting, this is a multi-piece DIY engagement. Of course what you get out of it is a bit more than just a tiny little robot that can zoom around your yard. The end result of this is a standing robot with humanoid walking.
Unlike your more common robotics kits, this one has a load of different sensors on it. There’s a gyro, distance ranger and extra ports for adding your own sensors to make this little robot better. This is not a project for the easily intimidated. But if you’re brave, you can pick up the ROBOTIS Bioloid Premium Kit for $1,199.
