Introduction: K'NEX Robotic Suit Mark II

Picture of K'NEX Robotic Suit Mark II
This is the second robotic suit, or kenexoskeleton that I have designed out of K'NEX. It is a completely revised version of my first suit, except for the helmet, and is stronger and more mobile. It took about a year to create and is composed of roughly 7,000 pieces.

Step 1: Helmet

The helmet is the only piece I kept from my original suit. It also has eye flaps that can open and close.

Step 2: Torso

This piece was definitely the most challenging. It covers my whole torso, leaving only holes for the arms and head. However, it was still flexible enough that I could lean side to side and bend without limitations. It also opened along the center of the front so that I could easily step inside and put it on.

Step 3: Arms

Picture of Arms

The arms were the easiest part of the suit to create. I could fully bend my elbows, while the wrist was also able to rotate and bend. The fingers could move and grasp as well. The shoulders were also modified so that I was able to move my arms 360 degrees and even rotate them.

Step 4: Legs & Feet

The legs were improved so that I could walk normally, as well as run. I was able to bend my knee 90 degrees and also pivot on my ankle. Like the torso, my legs opened down the center and the foot folded out so that I could step in to wear it.

Step 5: Final Product

Once I had built all of the pieces, I attached them together and produced the result below. In order to hang it, I built a frame out of PVC pipes and used several elastic cords to suspend it from the shoulders. Putting it on was relatively easy, as I was able to open the torso and legs and just step inside.

i see you made it so theres no bottum of the foot so you can reduce part use and increase comfortability

BleSam112233 (author)the potato2012-07-28

Don't ask for an step-by-step instructable, because this suit was made relative to his body size. You could be 4 foot 2 inches, and he might be 5 foot 1 inch. The exact measurements are nessecary. He can't say one size fits all.

cgreen3737 (author)BleSam1122332014-10-17

i have. its pritty awesome. im 5 foot. it fits great.

the potato (author)BleSam1122332012-08-10

The pillow case is because my head is too small. Still, that stop motion video on facebook really helped at speed 0.25. That is awesome!
