3D printing is suddenly all the rage, allowing people to create things from actual medical devices to novelty items. So how stinkin’ cool is this? A website called My Robot Nation will allow you to design your very own robot that they’ll then 3D color print and deliver right to your door!
The website makes it super easy to design your robot, walking you through a step-by-step process. First, mix-and-match a head, torso, arms, and legs to create your basic body frame. Next, you can add colors, stamps, and cool little accessories and add-ons and pose your robot any way you’d like. All that’s left to do after that is save your creation, select the size you want, and buy! The robots come in sizes from 2″-6″ with varying prices, but can be custom made in a different size as well. The robots can be delivered around the world, usually arriving within 8-10 business days within the U.S.
Collectors can create whole armies of these cool, custom robots. Just keep in mind that the robots are fragile and should be treated like any other ceramic item, so probably not the best idea for young kids. For the robot enthusiast though, I think this is a totally fun idea. You can even purchase gift cards from the website for someone who would love to design their own little creation.
