Robots. They’re set to (maybe) take over the world. But first, they’re going to take over our…desks?

If the uArm Swift from uFactory is any indication of what the future of desktop peripherals might look like, robotic arms capable of 3D printing or pick & placing may ultimately be just as common as the desktop 3D mouse or a digital sketching tablet.

Available in both standard and pro models (with the pro more geared towards designers and engineers), the open source and programmable uArm Swift is perfect for just about any odd job you can throw at it—even handing you your beer.

Wait…what? A robotic air hockey player, too?

Starting at just $209 for the basic model, and $409 for the Pro model for early Indiegogo backers, the uArm Swift just might be the high-five throwing desk buddy you’ve been waiting for.

Find out more over at Indiegogo.
