Despite its current depth, robotics is still seen as an emerging technology, which means the future is likely to be filled with opportunities in the field. And those looking to explore can do so right from their desk, thanks to the WLKATA Mirobot mini robot arm kits.

Over 600 backers on Kickstarter have pledged over $ 300,000 to help bring the Mirobot to life – and it’s easy to see why. It is essentially a scaled-down version of a factory robotic arm, measuring less than 9 inches in height and weighing about the same weight as a laptop. It is mechanically capable of operating to the same standards as arms many times its size, with full six-axis freedom of movement and repeated positioning accuracy of 0.2mm.

The robot arms are pre-assembled and ready to use from the box. Each comes with several accessories to customize the robot’s actions, like clamps, suction cups, magnets, and even pen holders. It can be controlled via a PC, phone app or microcontroller. WLKATA Studio official PC software allows you to code the robot yourself using Blockly, G-code and Python, play with draw mode or learn with learn and read mode.

Here’s a more detailed look at the Mirobot:

There are two different versions of the Mirobot: the Education Kit and the Professional Kit. The Professional Kit is basically just a more advanced version of the Education Kit and comes with a Bluetooth robot controller for more versatility and learning potential. For a limited time, you can purchase the Education Kit on sale for $ 1,399.99 (usually $ 1,540) and the Professional Kit on sale for $ 1,539.99 (regularly $ 1,690).
