The Robosen K1 Interstellar Scout is basically a programmable humanoid robot that focuses on STEM education for children, teens and adults alike. Featuring seventeen servo motors at the joints, the movements are not only extremely smooth, but mimic those of a real human. You can control it with a free Android / iOS app, your own voice, or a basic remote control. Use the integrated USB port to quickly and easily download custom programs.

Whether it be handstands, flips or even dances, the Robosen K1 shines. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it is not capable of autonomous operation, which means you can’t just leave it alone in a messy house and expect to come home to a clean one. Pricing has not yet been announced for the entire lineup, but the top-of-the-line Pro model is expected to retail at $299.99.
