I have been anticipating the Tinybop’s Robot Factory release for months! The day is finally here! Build a robot and then see them walk, or not, depending on how your construction skills hold up. So much fun! Who doesn’t love to build robots? Exactly.
Nerds Rejoice! RoboChair is foldable chair that doubles as wall art! Unlike most folding chairs that get stored in a closet or tucked away when not in use, RoboChair hangs proudly on your wall with an easy mounting bracket.
If you want to make one of these your own, head over to Kickstarter and support the RoboChair campaign.
More fuel for my Robot obsession: A kit that allows you to build your very own Bobble Head Robots. Scissors and glue required. Eight styles in total.
Freaker is a North Carolina based company that is on the forefront of keeping bottles cool and hands more comfortable. Zach Crain and the Freaker Team are pursuing their American dream of preventing all most handshakes with their patent pending product, the Freaker.
And Ellen, you should really consider having Zach on your show. He’s quite something:
I know, I know, I might as well just start a blog dedicated to just robots… But bear with me, and check out Robole. What an amazing toy. The possibilities are endless as all the pieces connect via magnets. I am giddy over this and Robole just jumped on the very top of my #wishlist. Now if only I spoke Polish.
Our son’s first birthday is coming up. Is there a Robot Cake in our future?

This Mini Robot Vacuum won my heart. I think I need to make space for it on my desk. This fun desktop robot will clean up all your messes! Simply press top button and zoom over crumbs, pencil shavings or other debris and he’ll sweep ‘em up.
While I am not all that crazy about quilts, this Robot Quilt by Boo Davis made me look and smile. It’s called “Does Not Compute”. Boo Davis shares the pattern and everything you need to know to make it in her book, “Dare to Be Square Quilting: A Block-by-Block Guide to Making Patchwork and Quilts.”
(How appropriate that the cover features an owl, my ‘obsession in the making!”)
Yes, my robot obsession is in full force: Check out this Robot Wallpaper by Aimée Wilder. (gasp-for-air!)
(Thank you Caroline)
Please pardon another robot-obsession-indulgence on my part: Robot Headphone Splitter. It is compatible with any standard device with a 3.5 mm headphone socket such as MP3 players, PDAs and computers. Eyes of the robot are the headphone sockets. Includes key chain attachment for on-the-go.
I wasn’t kidding when I said I have a new obsession; Robots:
Check out this wooden, minimalist Robot Man. Love at first sight? Yes! Inspired by traditional japanese joinery, his wooden frame and elastic muscles enable him to hold all sorts of poses. Folds neatly into a cube for rest time.
