OK while we don’t often outright plug ‘toys’ or desktop gadgets on the market, we do like KUKA robot arms! (See here and here – oh and also here and here.) So while made of plastic and not even a full foot tall (20 to 30 cm), we’re considering getting one of these things just to play with it for the price point.
Here are the specs:
Measurements: approx. 18-20 cm with extended arm; Base: Ø 7.5 cm
Color: silver / orange
Finishing: 1-color printing KUKA Logo
