Karakuri Tea Serving Bot Kit

During the Edo Period of Japan, Karakuri Ningyo created mechanical dolls that were in essence some of the first robots. Gakken has recreated many of these in DIY kits, the latest being the Tea Serving Robot. When completed, the doll will carry tea and serve it with a bow. At a size of 20 x 16 x 27cm and a weight of 760g, everything is included except for instructions in English (those are downloadable) for $105.00.
