Beware the robot invasion! Ok, so robots aren’t currently something we need to fear. Actually, today’s consumer-friendly robots are often fun and useful little gadgets that can potentially make our lives a bit easier. While robots are still often thought of as futuristic contraptions, there are actually several different types of robots that are already widely available for purchase. Some of them are helpful, some are playful, and some are actually surprisingly sophisticated, like SoftBank’s Pepper robot.

You won’t be able to get your hands on Pepper anytime soon in the United States, but in this post we’ll show you five robots that are all commercially available and can be purchased right now — and they start at just $45 shipped!
