  • Parrot Rolling Spider Robot (Blue)
    Fun Fun Fun
    Review by ant2ony
    I own many drones including the Parrot A.R Drone 2.0. I love these little flying robots from Parrot, flying them is so much fun. After receiving this Parrot MiniDrones Rolling Spider I was surprised of how small it is without the rolling wheel this mini drone fits in the palm of your hands. This done comes with the wheel detached but it took 5 seconds to assemble it however it may be a little tricky to clip it onto the drone and the manual is not very clear on this process but the videos online was very helpful, my recommendation is to watch the videos online to get familiar with the drone and to learn some tricks. I love the fact that this drone can be charged using a standard micro USB cable, The battery life may only be 8 minutes which is on the short side but after flying it for a while, 8 minutes is enough time to enjoy flying the drone. The drone is controlled using the Free Flight 3 app for both iOS and Android using bluetooth, even with bluetooth I could fly this drone around my house without any issue both indoors and outdoors even the connection stays strong I never lost bluetooth connection between my iPhone and the drone. The included camera on the drone is low resolution but a camera is not usually found on drones this small so this was a nice addition and takes decent enough photos and all you have to do is plug the drone into your computer to retrieve your photos. The best thing about this little drone is the app lets you customize how to control the drone by using your phones tilt function or touchscreen joystick and performing flips and rolling on walls and ceilings. I enjoyed using this drone while rolling on the ground it was so easy to control and performs like a small R/C car.

  • Parrot Jumping Sumo Robot (Black)
    I'm loving this thing!
    Review by Tim
    My family and I haven't had this much fun in a long time. This little thing zips around and stops on a dime and turns on that same spot. Great control.
    We've set up an obstacle course in the basement and my sons and I have time trials. We're having a great time!
    It's a very well constructed product too. I cringed when I accidentally smashed it into a wall but it suffered no ill effects and zipped on.
    Outstanding product.

  • The MostUseless Machine Kit
    Good instructions, good product
    Review by Elisabeth
    This is an excellent kit, and the directions are easy enough for even a novice at soldering to do. The pictures are very helpful for the most part, although for a few of them, it would be nice if they were a little clearer / had more detail.

    If you're new at assembling things, the only thing to watch out for is when you're screwing the tiny screws for the hinges, lids, etc. If they aren't going in absolutely perfectly straight, they will be impossible to screw in. To avoid stripping the screw when this happens, screw it in via little twists, and the moment you feel more than ordinary resistance, loosen it up, adjust the angle, and try it again.

    This box has been quite a conversation piece already, and is well worth it. Have fun building your own boxes!

  • Voice Activated R2-D2
    Collector item - numbered serie
    Review by Alex
    If you're a fan of 'Star Wars' you wouldn't be disappointed. Great sound reproduction of the movie.
    Well build, solid and good sensors. Fun interaction. My child plays also with it when he is switched off.
    He is also looking great as a prop replica. He is big enough.
    Good battery life.
    Product/technology of 2001! Sold out world wide.
    Good price!

Although it had been unclear in the past, the present state of technology shows that robotics has become a tangible reality. The evolution of robotics follows the same course that was once followed by the evolution of the PC and computers. [...]
