Robot Recipe: Rabbits at AmDC Built

Saturday, May 12th, 2018

Robot Recipes: Rabbit will be on display for the next two weeks at the American Design Club Built Show.

“Built is starting from scratch. Built is the process. And a method. Built is a decision. And a material. Built is the tools we use. And how we use them. Those who innovate a way past limitations deserve a stage of appreciation during NYCxDesign 2018.”

Built will be on view and open to the public May 11th - 23rd. Hours each day are 11am - 7 pm (Sundays 12 - 6pm).

There are a bunch of great designs and products showing there.

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

Made these guys a little while ago. I’ve been iterating on this robot rabbit form for a while now. I’m afraid there is more to come.

Robot Recipes: Iron Man

I can’t believe it took me this long to make an Iron Man Robot Recipe. Two cans, a few milled parts, and a nice powder coat paint job. I might make a couple more of these, probably put some lights inside.

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.

Robot Recipes - Pumpkin Pi Bots

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Pumpkin Pi Bot

MAKE Magazine ran a how-to on some Thanksgiving themed Robot Recipes, Pumpkin Pi Bots. Made from the cans of pumpkin pie ingredients.

Some parts are straight forward and some parts are so overly complicated, I’d recommend skipping them altogether. But it gave me a chance to use my new Othermill and slip roll. Happy Thanksgiving.

CNCd Toy Cars

Finally finished up some CNC’d toy cars for some nephews. 2.5D cut plywood with some off the shelf wheel assemblies and a couple of coats of shellac. These might look pretty good cut out of walnut.
