Last week I did a gift guide to my favorite robots and robot-related products available in the Maker Shed. Now I spread my end effectors a little wider to cover other robot-related goodies available this holiday. This is not a comprehensive guide, just some of the robots that have caught my eye or struck my fancy over the past year.

What hobby robot tech are you most excited about? What would you like to get as a present? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Take me to the robots!

    Where can you get a Nao for $6800? They’re twice that at RobotShop… oh, I see. The version without legs is $6800. Rats.

      Oops. You’re right, Bob. That’s for the torsobot. The full Nao is $16,000.

  2. Hello Gareth, it looks great to have Nao as a gift. But it is worthy, only loved person can give this as gift. I wish I have a loved one to send me this kind of gift.
