Clicbot is a modular kit that’s 10,000 robots in one

You’ll definitely click

With so many adorable programmable robots now available, it’s so difficult to choose. So why not instead buy thousands of the things in a single box? Fortunately, with Clicbot (from £229), you don’t even need a particularly big box, because this kit is modular, with component parts that slot together as easily as Lego. You can fashion everything from a worm-like phone-holding face-tracker to a robot that climbs walls like Spider-Man – if Spider-Man had massive suction cups at the end of his limbs. There are also wheels for trundling/racing droids, and a grasping claw to have your plastic pal hand you your coffee when you can’t be bothered to reach for it yourself. To get the full experience, you’ll need the £535 master kit, but even the entry-level box nets you ten official robot set-ups, and many further options for custom creations – although no climbing in that one, unless you figure out how to make Clicbot lob a grappling hook through an upstairs window.
