KumoTek is shipping it's latest robot kit, and it looks to be a winner. The “KumoTek-X” (KT-X) robot was designed to offer an entertaining, low-cost alternative to high-end robotics, while combining the latest in sleek design and cutting-edge robotics engineering.

The KT-X is the first low-cost bi-pedal robot platform of its kind to be offered in the U.S. that (a) can be controlled using a standard wireless PS2 gamepad controller, (b) is easy to use and (c) offers endless hours of entertainment.

The robot is capable walking, running, somersaulting and standing up from a face-up or face-down lying position. It can even be programmed to pull itself up autonomously after it has fallen over. It stands 13” tall, has 17 servo actuated joints (i.e., 17 degrees of freedom), a powerful 60MHz HV processor with 512kB ROM / 64kB RAM and comes fully loaded with over 75 preprogrammed acrobatic motions.

Best of all, the “KumoTek-X” (KT-X) robot can be purchased as a kit or fully assembled. Prices range from $990 to $1,490
