Building a custom robot is a task not many people can accomplish easily -- or at all. The Linkbot is a robot that was made for people who couldn’t build robots.

The Linkbot offers users the opportunity to build and customize their very own robot into whatever they want. The custom robot design encourages users to create various programs and designs to their robots. Unlike most robots out today, the Linkbot has unlimited potential in terms of design and functionality. Users can attach accessories and other devices to further customize their robots. Individuals can attach wheels, cameras, block legs and even a wig to the Linkbot.

The robot’s skills and knowledge grows through trial and error, which means the possibility of the Linkbot developing a highly intelligent A.I. bent on human destruction is possible.
