RobotCity Workshop may well be the only store of its kind in the country, a visionary shop with the slogan "Make your own friends." Education has been a central part of this establishment's mission for years, as they have worked with school students to build robotics projects. Now, they are doing the same for adults.
With a retail outlet in the front of the store, and a workshop on the premises, anyone can learn how to build a robot. Of course, there are other projects available too.
The shop carries all types of robots. They range from personal robots, cleaning robots, security robots, and other categories of robots as well. In addition, the RobotCity Workshop offers hobby kits for all ages and abilities, electronic parts, and, of course, the hardware to hold it all together. Everything for the robot builder is available here.
This may very well be the prototype for robotics stores. Providing not only the materials and means to built the machines, but also the educational experience to enable everyone to learn about robotics. After all, for those of us that believe the robotics revolution is here to stay, this is the kind of place that needs to be in every city.
