75 Robot Gifts

From Robotic Touch-Responsive Cats to Blazing-Fast Racing Drones

— December 25, 2017 — Tech
Considering how advanced robots have become in recent years, it's probably worth noting off the top that the robot gifts referred to here are toys and gadgets aimed at the tech- and robot-loving people in one's life. With AI and animatronic technologies at dazzling degrees of sophistication, if one were to misinterpret this title as gifts for robots themselves, they'd be excused.

As far as robot gifts go, there tend be two categories: business and pleasure. On the business side, there are plenty of robots designed to take care of household chores and everyday errands, like mowing the lawn, vacuuming the house, or handling home security. For pleasure, there are scores of robotic toys for people of all ages, from robots that play games and teach coding to hobby drones for the adult with a childlike sense of wonder.
