5 robots you can buy right now

We're still in the early days of the robot era, but there are a few you can own right now.

Parrot AR Drone 2.0

Parrot's flying robot is maybe the most well-known drone for consumers.

The AR Drone 2.0 gives its owners a high degree of flexibility over how it is used: It provies exciting (or frightening) opportunities for video capture (or surveillance). It can be controlled with a tablet or smartphone. And the AR Drone 2.0 can also follow a programmed flight pattern, giving it certain robotic qualities that other consumer drones may lack.
