Erin “RobotGrrl” Kennedy has introduced the Buddy 4000 robot chassis. It’s an open source, 3D-printable robot:

Buddy 4000 was created to look like a modern version of the old ‘tin toy’ robots. We put much effort into the design of the ‘bot, so hopefully it meets this goal. It took a while to finish this off, especially with all the documentation. Enjoy it! If it makes someone smile, it has been worth it.

If you don’t want to print your own, you can buy Buddy from RobotGrrl’s web store. Looks awesome, Erin!
