Wile all the robots look very interesting, our favorite robot this year is Unrund by Korinna Lindinger. Unrund is a porcelain robot shaped like a ball that rolls around, seemingly at random. Looks great for parlor tricks or scaring your cat. Check out the video below of Unrund rolling around on ice.
