Introduction: Instructables Robot, of Knex!

Picture of Instructables Robot, of Knex!

I have been a really annoyed at how low knexer rep has been, and have had enough guns for a
looooooong time. I want to not be held back, and am hoping that this will stop you knex haters from lowering our ratings, without even looking at what it is.

I decided that building The Robot from knex would be a great way to start, so here is my contribution towards the non-knex community, with a nice little spark of ingenuity.

Did I mention that this is a REAL robot, with programmable settings and voice settings? Well it is!

The voice chip I have decided works best is Gramps, from the cybots set.

You can... Zachnimie or whoever made an unofficial greasemonkey script.

Bartboy (author)DJ Radio2009-11-08

But they don't show up to other people, do they?

DJ Radio (author)Bartboy2009-11-08

Yeah they do.

Bartboy (author)DJ Radio2009-11-08

RMConstruction (author)2009-04-30

Lol... i have the set, that means.... he shouts 'MECTRON. STANDING. (ding dilla da ding, ding dilla da ding) *whrrrrrrrrr*

when he starts, right?

Bartboy (author)RMConstruction2009-04-30

Hmmm. I don't know. Hard to understand...

RMConstruction (author)Bartboy2009-05-01

you know.., the noises the cyber knex sets make when ya turn them on...

Bartboy (author)RMConstruction2009-05-02

I meant I can't tell. To me it sounds like: meh, generation X.

Cool, even cooler if the arms had some sort of interchangeable Knex weapon and fired with the remote control.

Scale up and print out =SMART='s paper robot so you can put some clothes on your bare bot.

When I get my second cybots set I will!

Bartboy (author)Bartboy2009-03-11

Shipped wrong, it's broken.. :(

Bartboy (author)caitlinsdad2008-12-12

I have a plan, but that would be better. Only problem is that I don't have a huge printer, but I could get my uncle to do it.

caitlinsdad (author)Bartboy2008-12-12

Look at GorillazMiko's ible on converting stuff to print out large size that is split up on several pages.

Bartboy (author)caitlinsdad2008-12-13

But I need the shape to be PERFECT. I plan on just cutting out construction paper, as that will work on knex.

Bartboy (author)FrozenStar2008-12-13

Thank you! I am planning to make a v2, and possibly a v3. V2 will have color and arm improvements, and V3 might have a chip programmed specially for it.

Der Bradly (author)2008-12-13
