Introduction: How to Make a Cheap, Mini Robot Out of Cardboard
Well, this is my latest project, once again made purely of boredom. But, on a different note, I'm going to try to make something even bigger, badder, and better for the Gorilla Glue Contest. Moving on!
Step 1: Supplies
two bright Red LED lights,
Cardboard, of course. Or something different, such as poster-board.
and, an empty duct tape roll.
Step 2: The Head and Body.
Make a cardboard box that's 1 inch by 1 inch by 1 inch, but DON'T close one side. Then, poke 2 holes for the LED's to fit through. The open side should be the back of the head. You can cut this off, but I think it looks like he's going through some robot brain-surgery, so I'm keeping the side. :)
Next, make a tube that looks like the picture (sorry, no measurements) and close up one side. Then, duct tape his head to it later. I wrapped everything in a gray duct tape, because I thought it looked robotic and neat. you can do whatever.
The arms are aluminum foil, so you can bend the elbow joints when you are done. i wrapped the aluminum foil in duct tape, to match the body.
Step 3: The Legs
I took an empty duct tape roll and rolled them into a good sized leg. You make his legs however you think looks good.
Step 4: Enjoy, Robot Master!
Give him a name, give him a friend. It's all up to you and your imagination.!:D
