Technology has never looked so cute and with Nelly Pailloux's new book, Crobots you can learn how to crochet an army of adorable robots.

The technique of amigurumi hails from Japan and you can certainly see that influence in the book with geisha, ninja and sumo robots to make. There is a cute concept behind each design, ranging from mechanabots and zombiebots, to catbots and sheepbots.

Complete with crochet patterns and assembly instructions for making 20 different robots, these would be quick knits for any skilled knitter, and would make great gifts to give away (if you could bear to let them go!)

You can pick up a copy of the book from Andrews McMeel Publishing. Check out a sample project from the book, Mechanobot.
