It was an ordinary Thursday on Instructables (sorry, it was Pizza Thursday. We don't have ordinary Thursdays on Instructables. But you get the point). I was in the kitchen, preparing a lemonade, thinking about how to transform a flashlight into a cyborg arm and how not to make more junkbots for the rest of my artistic residence, minding about my own business, when I hear a piercing scream:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

I quickly turned around, looking for the first aid kit (it could be a medic emergency) or a knife (It could be a rat. A big bad mutant rat with evil red eyes). But the situation was worst than I thought.

They send us the wrong paper towels.

We have displays for scrolls of paper towels, but nothing had prepared us for multifold paper towels. Box-shaped, multifold, horrible, paper towels.

Some people suggested to leave it this way without using the display for scrolls. A beautiful and smart co-worker (I won't say her name because I don't want the NASA take her away from us, due to her extraordinary out-of-the-box thinking) succesfully inserted the multifold paper towels into the cylinder.

But I didn't give up. I had to invent a more complicated way for keeping the paper towels in a display.

Then I remembered I had an extra damaged speaker from the Robot Lamp I made as first project. And it had the correct shape and size. So, how I solved this problem? As the same way I solve most of the problems: Junkbots!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you... AMADEUS, THE NAPKINS HOLDER JUNKBOT!

And if you don't have paper towels or napkins, you can use it for brochures.

(Yes, I know. I promise, the next three projects won't be junkbots. I'm becoming the Derek Zoolander of the DIY world)

Do you really break up a speaker, a camera and I don't know what else just for holding napkins ∞ And the whole contraptions can't even walk although it hs legs ???…
Wow …  ;)))))
M.C. Langer (author)  vincent75202 years ago
Well, I don't break anything. I just accumulate e-waste, junk and plastic trash. So I always have junk on stock when I need to build something :-)
Ah ! … I thought I was the only one !… ;-))))

Great design !
