That Husqvarna Demolition Robot is a mighty fine beast. Unless you’re going to use it for commercial purposes, though, we doubt it makes any real sense to get one delivered to your house. This versatile 3-in-1 All Terrain Robot might be more along your style.
Able to function as a rover, a forklift and a gripper, the robot comes with modular parts that you can use to equip it accordingly. Assembly is supposedly easy, too, and is rated as suitable for children as young as eight, so your old beer-drinking ass should have no problem doing the same.
The 3-in-1 All Terrain Robot sports 6 caterpillar tracks, giving it strong grip and enhanced maneuverability over all types of surfaces, including steep inclines and tight spaces. It’s more of a short-term entertainment than something you can commission for useful tasks around the house, though, since the battery-powered controller is wired (yep, you’ll be standing next to it the whole time).
The entire robot comes flat-packed in the box, so you get to assemble the whole thing from top to bottom. All parts are designed to fit and hold, so there’s no need to solder (or even Sugru) anything during the build. That means, your super weak workshop skills will probably do.
While we do wish it had a radio controller instead of a wired one, the 3-in-1 All Terrain Robot could work as a decent building project, especially if you bring in kids to help out. Plus, it’s rather cheap, retailing for just £24.99 .
