If you are like me, you are probably drunk already wondering about how complicated is to build one of those really cool robot kits from Kondo and their like. Is it better to take the easy option because building them looks as difficult as developing self-evolving smartypantsiebots from scratch? Should I just be happy to expand the capabilities of my Robosapien? And can you trust robots who dance better than you?

Well, reading the step-by-step tutorial on how to build a Manoi AT01, at the always fun and surrealist (thanks to Google translation) Robot Watch, building a Mr. Roboto kit doesn't look too difficult. Sure there are plenty of cables and connections to make, but it seems like a straightforward and enjoyable job. Take a look at the condensed gallery to see the building milestones or jump to the translated version of the article to see the detailed step-by-step instructions.
