Introduction: K'NEX Robotic Suit

Picture of K'NEX Robotic Suit
This is a robotic suit that I designed out of K'NEX using around 6,000 pieces. It is completely mobile and functions like an exoskeleton. Let me know what you think!

Is it comfortable

jbrew1 (author)2012-07-09

thats awesome! my only concern is that the crouch is visible and not protected. good job though.

How much time did it take to build?
and to put on?

PiNguyen (author)imans3142011-07-03

Thanks! It took about two years working off and on and only took about ten minutes to put on.

Most amazing suit ever

Kiteman (author)2011-07-09

You should put a proper step-by-step of this together, and then save publishing it until the next Hallowe'en contest is announced.

builder968 (author)2011-07-08

Awesome! As Oblivitus said, maybe mount guns on the arms? And a small "cannon" on the shoulder? That would be EPIC.

JoeBeau (author)2011-07-06

That's just so over-the-top..............its excellent! Certainly puts the knex cars and such i have built to shame. You've got another vote, thats for sure.

iminthebathroom (author)2011-07-05

Hhahahahha!!!! OH MY GOODNESS!! That is amazing! I am awe-struck.

It fits and looks fantastic, great work!

inergy (author)2011-07-02

1 question. How exactly do you get in and out of it?

PiNguyen (author)inergy2011-07-03

I had to separate the arms and legs and then once I had the torso on, put it back together.

knexinventer (author)2011-07-03


Sorunome (author)2011-07-03

WOW, that's awesome! 5*s! Keep going! :)

Oblivitus (author)2011-07-03

Wow! This would look sick in metallics. I love the helmet. You should put a gun on each arm. A couple of TR-18's would work great. 5 stars.

DJ Radio (author)2011-07-02

I know quite a few people have tried to make Knex armor/suits before but you're amazingly the first person to finish. Hope it doesn't hurt when I push you down while you wear this.

The Jamalam (author)2011-07-02

Woah, you sir have just amazed me. Best thing that's been posted in a while.

beanieostrich (author)2011-07-02
