Climb@ Tron R.E.X. Wall Climbing Robot

Climb@ Tron R.E.X. (Image via Amazon)
By Shane McGlaun

If you ever wanted your own robot that could climb walls and looked like the machine gun wielding evil robot from Robocop you are in luck. Amazon has a small robot that stands 4.5-inches tall and is powered by a pair of AAA batteries, that aren’t included, that meet all the previous criteria.

The little robot has suction cup feet that allow it to climb smooth vertical surfaces and when it reaches the top, it will climb back down. The little bot looks like the Robocop robot with a bit of Cylon DNA mixed in to me and can even operate upside down. About the only smooth surfaces that are vertical around my house are the glass patio doors, so be sure you have some smooth walls before you order yours. The Climb@ Tron only costs $9.50 and is available now.

    isn’t this REALLY old?

  • boogers

    Yeah it’s ancient, and even Gizmodo is carrying this story. This stupid thing is literally 8 years old and it doesn’t even work that well.

    I bought this for my younger brother like 8 or 9 years ago. His still works pretty well though
