32 Impressive Robot Toys

From Pop Culture Robots to Playful Programmable Bots

— January 25, 2014 — Tech
While we may not have flying cars yet, we at least have robot toys.

These toys aren't your Terminator-esque type robots with wings that can take you to and from your day job but that doesn't stop them from being undeniably fun. These beautiful bots range from kid-friendly gadgets that can fly and climb walls to futuristic gadgets featured at the 2014 CES show in Las Vegas.

These flamboyant and multi-functioning bots may not be iRobot-worthy but if you're a gadget geek who likes the idea of a futuristic time ruled by robots or just love the metal-infused human beings themselves, then these robot toys are definitely something you need in your life.
