Otona no Kagaku Mini Robot Vacuum Cleaner Kit

DIY robotic home appliance

It might not have been invented in Japan but the round robot vacuum cleaner immediately became a hit here, and of course it would since the Japanese love all things robotic! The Otona no Kagaku Mini Robot Vacuum Cleaner Kit, brought to you by the popular science magazine, lets you build your own appliance and the result is a cute little gadget that you can actually use to clean your table or desk.

Despite its complicated mechanism, the Otona no Kagaku Mini Robot Vacuum Cleaner Kit is surprisingly easy to assemble. Using the included schematics, you will be able to have it up and running in minutes, provided that you feed it with two AA batteries. Its body is transparent, so you can actually see it in action while it's cleaning, and it even has a manual mode for using as a regular table cleaner. And despite its small size (120 x 120 x 40 mm, 4.7 x 4.7 x 1.6"), it has a 20 ml (0.7 fl oz) capacity – that's over a tablespoon of sugar!
