Japanese hobby robot manufacturer Kyosho is back with another 1/5-scale Manoi bot, the cheerful-looking PF-01. Like its older brothers, the AT-01
and the original MANOI
, the $1,461 PF-01 can be outfitted with a number of sensors, and each of its 17 motors can be programmed to do your evil bidding -- but only after about 10 hours of assembly. Budding mad scientists our there better hurry though -- pre-orders for the first 100 off the assembly line are due in by June 10th for release on June 30th, and Kyosho is only planning on making a total of 300 after that.
