A Japanese toymaker unveiled its newest innovation on Tuesday, a robot a fifth of the size of a human that anyone can put together.
Over one hundred parts make up the "ManoiPF 01" which its makers, Kyosho corporation, put on the market next month.
It's estimated that the price of the plastic robot will be less than 1,700 dollars.
The robot talks, walks and adjusts to the distance of the object in front of it, just like any other human sized bipedal robot.
"We made this robot in the convenient size of one fifth of a human so that the non-expert users can bring life to it and create their original robots," said Masayuki Okamoto, Chief of the Robot Group at Kyosho Corporation.
Users can also buy additional sensors to customise their robot further and, although they do not have to program the robot, by applying sensors the robots can create their own movement.
The company hopes to develop the robots' mobility further to make them more athletically capable.
