Crazy to think of all of the work that goes into assemblies that no one will even see.

Captain America

I made a couple of Captain America inspired robots for my nephew’s birthday. They don’t do much, except stand up to major punishment and promote liberty and justice for all. Just like Cap.

The Making of Dr. Robot Head

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

When Jason and I finally decided to enter the ELE contest, we had about a week to do it. So the project was going to be a quick one and on the cheap. It turns out, I had just about everything I needed to make 3 robot heads in my apartment.

I put some time into two of the heads, the third one was basically just a white board, spray painted silver (not my best work).

The body was a wooden frame bolted to the back of an office chair. I sat backwards on the chair to operate the heads.

We even put a little site together for the good doctor.

D.A.R.T.T.H. #1   3 Lines

Drawing Artistic Robot Two THousand.

My office had an art show, the theme was “Nerd” my entry was D.A.R.T.TH. Basically, a Silo cup with 3 Sharpies hot glued to it (it also has some sweet Darth Vader sound effects I ripped out of a magazine ad).

Everything that it draws looks like a gaint spirograph though.
