'KEYi Technology Inc.' released a modular robot that is made up of a chain of fully customizable cells. Although robots are nothing new, modular robotics is still in its infancy. This company had managed to create a modular robot that is simple enough for anyone to use.

The 'CellRobot' is a robotic device that is made up of a series of orb-like cells. The robot can be assembled in various different ways and each shape yields a different movement. In addition to basic movement, the robot is also equipped with features such as a camera, spotlight and wheels, all of which allow it to carry out advanced functions. The pieces link together through the use of disparate cells, which communicate with one another. There is also a special cell that acts as the central hub of the robot and allows users to connect the device to their smartphone or tablet.

The 'CellRobot' demonstrates the growing demand for consumer-made robotics.
