We have compiled a short list of our favorite last minute robot Christmas presents. Merry XMas from Robots everyone!
1. The Blubber Bot Robotic Inflatable
We might be a bit biased, but we've always had a weak spot for the hapless blimps flying around our lab. Now there's a robot kit that allows you to build one yourself in a day. And imagine how cool it would look flying around your house laden full with presents (the lighter ones at least) and a blinking Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer nose!
Just don't take it outside ... we've seen at least one haplessly disappear into the great blue sky with its builders looking on just as haplessly.
You can buy one here!
2. The unbelievable Dalek Christmas tree
You can't buy it as a pre-packaged kit, but as the picture and video show you can build a Dalek robot last minute - and what better present for your loved ones than a Dalek Christmas tree!
Check out a short Dalek xmas tree video here.
While we can't agree if we love or hate this year's Wall-E movie, we agree that it does make a good present for your grandma, office mate or little sister. And then there's also the WallE robotic toy, of course ...
And of course, don't forget to participate in our robot contest for your chance to win a WowWee Femisapien!
