Which areas of Physics. In robotics, there's a lot of very practical physics and engineering to keep you busy as well as programming and electronics...

Do you like to see results of your labor, build toys and program? Robotics!!!
Do you like to solve abstract problems, research into the unknown (not sci-fi, just obscure phenomena, nothing really noteworthy), just for the knowledge of science. Physics!!!

The math will be heavy with either, but Robotics would allow you to bail/expand into other fields if you want, Physics will keep you in teaching or academia, depending upon your real abilities ie you won't get a lot of options. You will teach if you leave with a BS or you can work in research with a Masters or stay in Academia and do research and find a way to publish if you want to make any money.
