Introduction: Female Instructables Robot
First Prize in the
Instructables Robot Contest
In case you need an Instructables robot.
Because your male instructables robot gets lonely.
Because your four year old daughter asked for a girl robot.
This is my second instructable in my series, "The Way Women reMake Masculine Images in the Maker Movement," in which I am exploring the ways in which females take a feminine object (like a dress) and make it into something else with a masculine image (raygun) or a masculine object and make it into something else with a feminine image or object.
Specifically, I am exploring the feminizing of the masculine technology within the Steampunk and Science Fiction genres of the Maker movement.
Step 1: Materials
Wooden Block that looks like dress. I am using the stereotypically feminine image of a dress on purpose.
Wheels for feet. Well, the Instructable robot has wheels for feet.
Cotter pins for mouth and antenna.
Metal head that looks like a robot face. Mine is, I believe, the covering of a sewing machine motor. Just look for a robot face, you'll find one.
Drill two holes into bottom of wooden block.
Put wheels in holes.
Fashion some way to attach metal head to wooden block.
I drilled two holes.
Add cotter pins and screw to top of head.
Add screws for arms.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
