In this paper, I summarize a new approach for the dissemination of robotics technologies. In a manner analagous to the personal computer movement of the early 1980's, we propose that a productive niche for robotic technologies is as a creative outlet for human expression and discovery. This paper describes our ongoing efforts to design, prototype and test a low-cost, highly competent personal rover for the domestic environment.
