Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Give the Gift of Bot


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.
