tin can robot 360x379 The Bots of Maker Shed

Tin Can Robot, $16

Like the SpinBot, this isn’t really a robot (it does no sensing); it’s a mechanical kit that turns a lowly soda can into a lumbering little robot-looking character. This is a fun gift for a young one (8 or up) who’s fascinated by robots but not ready to dive into actual bot-building and programming.
