Finally installed the vacuum formed heart, I made a few months back, into a robot.
I’m very honored that my concept, Robot Ambulance, has been accepted into Make: Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge.
Robot Ambulance is a toy robot fabrication lab on wheels. The goal of the project is to drive to schools, Maker Faires, or birthday parties and get kids making. More project details here.
Voting started today to decide the winners of the contest. Judging is based on overall Design, unique Customizations, and Maker Spirit embedded within. Vote for as few or as many entries once per day as you wish.
Robot sculptures by Gordon Bennette. They are in a store window on 5th Ave at 16th St. Totally worth checking out if you’re in the neighborhood.
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.
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.
