Introduction: BARBIE-KILLER ROBOT Made of Broken Joysticks (MUAHAHAHAHAHA!)

Picture of BARBIE-KILLER ROBOT Made of Broken Joysticks (MUAHAHAHAHAHA!)

(PARENTAL GUIDANCE: Some pictures and the video may be inappropriate for children under 13. This instructable contain sex references, prolonged nudity and strong horror scene with blood and gore. Hey! If a lot of videogames can show fatalities and mutilations, why not an instructable? And, If you like my instructable, please vote for me!)

Vibrobots have a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing: You can build a vibrobot even if you're bad in electronics and mechanics. The bad thing: If you only know to build vibrobots, soon you will get bored and frustrated of making always stuff with the same kind of motion.

Well, suppose you only know how to build vibrobots. So, what's the next step for not getting bored? Well, change the aesthetics and make bizarre things. Bizarre bloody things!!!

This is a vibrobot (as the shown in with a LED lighting its eye. The main material are broken joysticks. The lower body is the main part of a broken generic joystick, and the legs and arms are made of the handlers.

The upper body and blades come from a printer, and the head was made from a roll-on deodorant ball, a LED and an "Action Man" action figure helmet. The eccentric weight is the bottom of a blender glass. And the Barbie? Well, she was a poor Barbie found in a Flea Market.

You can see the video of this abomination working.

Too gory for you? Well, you can make a bigger joystick vibrobot, like the A.N.T. (Armored Nerd Technology). It was made with Genius joysticks (and no Barbie). This time, the eccentric weight is the gaitling gun.

But I love the Barbie-killer one. It's very "Quake 4" style!!!! :-)

Что за жестокость, зачем такая страшная игрушка? Автор маньяк!!!

M.C. Langer (author)runmy2015-04-18

Я не маньяк. Я очень функционируют пограничное расстройство личности. Сделайте свое исследование.

runmy (author)M.C. Langer2015-04-18

Скоро выложу один станок сделанный своими руками. Не обижайтесь за маньяка ))

John1017 (author)2013-10-25

Wow, That's cool!
How do you make these robots? I'm curious.

M.C. Langer (author)John10172013-10-28

Thanks John! Well, Check my other Instructables and you will see :-)

Kris T. (author)2013-08-25

I am reminded of Sid from Toy Story when I look at this, lol! Well done.

M.C. Langer (author)Kris T.2013-08-26

Thanks Kris T.!

Ouch!  That's gotta hurt!  Something about this piece, Barbie(r) vs. killer droid here, reminds of an old movie, Hardware.   It was from the 80s.  No wait. Technically it was the 90s.  IMDB says 1990, and other info, here:
Anyway that's a pretty disturbing looking robot you've got there.  More so because I think it bears a certain resemblance to the killer droid in that movie.  Probably just a coincidence though.  Now I'm gonna try not to have nightmares about that hellish thing.

M.C. Langer (author)Jack A Lopez2011-10-23

Thanks Jack! I have to watch the movie! :-)

Thanks Flipvhadz! :-)

flipvhadz (author)M.C. Langer2011-04-25

Uhmm... Sir, i have small problem here> about microcontroller chip things? cause I wanna make a non-fade sequential display? pls, if you can email me some steps of making with with its complete circuit...
email add:

ty sir.

M.C. Langer (author)flipvhadz2011-04-26

Sorry, but I don't know about electronics. I'm the Reuse Guy! But if I know of someone who knows, I will tell him.

MattGyver92 (author)2011-04-01

Reminds me of one of my character concepts!

M.C. Langer (author)MattGyver922011-04-02

AWESOME!!! But I miss the blades!!!!! ;-)

My inspiration was Makron, the Strogg leader in Quake 4. WHAT A GAME!!!!

MattGyver92 (author)M.C. Langer2011-04-04

Very cool looking. Now I can see the stroggness of it. I need to play Q4 soon! I've played Doom 3 and loved it as well.

MattGyver92 (author)MattGyver922011-04-18

Ahh, here's what I would think its blade claws remind me of-

chicopluma (author)2011-04-06

M.C. Langer (author)chicopluma2011-04-06

Biggsy (author)M.C. Langer2011-04-03

Kaptain Kool (author)2011-04-02

Where do you come up with all of these great ideas? These are awesome, great job.

M.C. Langer (author)Kaptain Kool2011-04-03

Thank you very much, Kaptain Kool!! :-)

Mr.Sanchez (author)2011-04-01

Featuring...Ken Vader...?

M.C. Langer (author)Mr.Sanchez2011-04-02

NOP. Ken is a pathetic fool!! ;-)

splazem (author)2011-04-02

Awesome. You should make an instructable. I would love to build one of these.

M.C. Langer (author)splazem2011-04-02

Thanks Splazem!! Well, just disarm two or three joysticks, and you will see the ideas come easily. I love the joysticks because the have a lot of great parts. And you can find the circuit and assembly tips in my previous instructables. It's a vibrobot, and I know you've got the power!!!! :-)
