5 Robots to Add to Your Deskscape

They say you can tell a lot about a person by looking at their desk and if that is the case then we're pretty sure our desk signals to the world that were slightly messy nerds with a bit of a thing for design. Don't laugh, but one of the ways in which we motivate ourselves to keep a tidier desk in our pint sized home office is by adding to the deskscape once it has been cleared a piece that will serve to make us laugh/ inspire us (rationale here is if the desk is messy we cannot see this cool object). A surefire way to put a smile on our faces is via robots, so here are 5 pint sized robots just perfect for desks.

5 fun robots for your desk:

1) Deetsy's Bot020: This tiny robot is made of polymer clay, a vintage vacuum tube, and miscellaneous hardware and stands roughly 3 inches tall which makes him just perfect for the home office desk. $16

2) Desktop Patrol Red Dalek: Another 3 inch tall robot, the Desktop Patrol Red Dalek has sensors that allow it to roll around a flat surface without falling off or bumping into things. $45

3) The Inchworm: Of course there is always the DIY route for creating your ideal robot desk friend. Follow Randy Sarafan's instructions and create your own Inchworm out of a ruler and comb.

4) Nerdbots: The aptly named Nerdbots created by Nicholas and Angela are made from household items and if you find one the right size, work well on a deskscape. (price varies)

5) Pocket Drunken Robot: Another DIY robot, these little guys add fun to your desk in the form of their "drunken" swaying. Follow Grathio's instructions to make your own pint sized robot.
