Robots are always a fascination among us, kids
are no exception.
Using things around us to recycle into a Robot,
creates a challenging situation. Firstly the resources
must be easily available for any kid to make them.
I had decided on the following items, black bendable
straws, film container, used, instant camera
components, metal wires, pvc base, springs, toy
globe, magnets, string and polymer clay.
The flasher circuit board are the most interesting
element, the component create a realistic looking
robot head and body. Cutting a access panel
into the robot body, exposing the circuit board,
adds realism into the model. Putting them together
require polymer clay, creating hands, feet and
the body joints. On completion you will be able
to bend the hands and legs, the magnets between
the head and body, will serve to articulate the head
in a rotating manner. Adding spring on the neck
makes the robot looks flexible and strong.
