my robot nation

my robot nation is a website that allows you to design your own custom miniature robot, which you can then have 3D printed and posted to you. you use the simple controls to select the body parts, colours, accessories, and stamps you want to create a personalised robot. you can order then in sizes ranging from two to six inches, with prices going from $18 to $170 as you go up.

this is a great example of how the mass-customisation made possible through 3D printing can be brought to the mass public. the website's great fun to play with anyway, even if you don't get them printed out!
