Cost: €130 You may not have your own robot servant just yet, but the MiP comes a little bit closer. The balancing robot can be controlled by gestures and comes with an attachable tray that allows it to carry its own bodyweight to wherever you deem fit.

That means you could, in theory, get it to transport a drink or two for you.

It’s also entertaining, with seven modes including a dance option, tricks and a game mode that will keep you occupied for a few hours at least.

It pairs with your smartphone – Android and iOS – with an app that will allow you to control its path around your home, garden or anywhere you choose to set it free.
