Christmas may be over, but this robot gingerbread house is still trending. Made out of a cardboard base, servo motors, and glue, the gingerbread house rearranges itself to become a "Gingerbreadtron."

According to the creator, "it was built with an Arduino Uno board for simple programming and six servo motors. In hindsight the project would have worked a little better if I had thought to use more powerful motors... It turns out gingerbread and candy is actually pretty heavy."
