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

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.
<p>plz make a mark lll and email plz</p>
<p>made somethingg simil</p>
<p>This is amazing! I may have to build one for myself!</p>
It would hurt like a mother of you fell while wearing that.
I'm done with it<br>
and you look a little like terminator the first<br>
I've made some thing simular to this but not with as many pieces as this one and nowhere near as much detail as this one! you did a great job!
I'm almost done with the suit
Oh my God. XD well done. I want to make it some day. I may not fit in it tho xD
I've finished it.
<p>the arm and torso were the most challenging</p>
<p>hey I created my version based off your idea</p>
<p>I came here to look up info on how to mod my Keurig coffee maker and stumbled upon this. Best day ever. Awesome work!</p>
I am so making one and wearing it into a nerf war.
You look like an xs1 goliath
<p>its on a video</p>
<p>its on a video</p>
<p>its on a video</p>
i see you made it so theres no bottum of the foot so you can reduce part use and increase comfortability
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.
<p>i have. its pritty awesome. im 5 foot. it fits great.</p>
<p>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!</p>
woooooooooooooow fleubedeuers xD
