Robots are the sort of thing that you either love or hate. Generally the only reason for the latter is your fear that they will one day rise up and destroy the entire human race. That, or you’re Han Solo. For the rest of us that embrace our robot overlords, there are a lot of fun toys and gadgets to be had. Take for instance this Robotic Arm Kit.
I’m not sure where this kind of stuff was when I was a kid, but this $45 robotic arm looks like a blast. It has 5 motors and 5 joints, and a lifting capacity of 100g. Sure, it can’t lift a lot, but that won’t stop you from having a lot of fun. Since this is a kit, half of the fun will actually be assembling the gadget. While it’s aimed at kids, I still wouldn’t have one of these myself.
