ROBO Builder kit: build your own robot

May 26, 2008

All robot-builders certainly don’t have any shortage of kits to choose from these days, but this new self-descriptive ROBO Builder set looks to be a good deal more complete than most and, compared to the norm, is somewhat more reasonably priced. You can combine three different robots (known as Dino, Huno and Dogy) on the basis of the robot, which seemingly everyone can be programmed with various activities, or simply by a computer or on the remote control. You can also use your choice black or transparent kits, this last, in some offer much higher break-dancing skills. It is also much more expensive, with a cost of 660000 won ($ 630) compared to 450,000 ($ 430) for the basic version black.
