Life Size Robot Prop





Introduction: Life Size Robot Prop

Liza Trainer has come up with some pretty awesome stuff over the years. Here is one of her many creations that start, not surprisingly, with a simple idea. Enjoy :).

Alright guys, I see the problem. No, I am not plagiarizing, Liza is a friend, and she asked me specifically to put this project on this website. I would not take something without asking and would never plagiarize her work. The link above is to her website, the link here is to the forum post of her asking me to post the project online. Finally, here is the forum post about the project. Enjoy.

Step 1: Da Feet

First she created the feet, very simply, as you can see below.

Step 2: De Legs

Next, she added more of the legs and gave it a human sitting look.

Step 3: Ze Body

Here she added a torso and some arms, and filled out the "sitting" look even more.

Step 4: Color

Then she painted the robot with a pretty simple camouflage paint job.

Step 5: Details

Some final painting and detailing make it look more worn and used, it even looks almost burned in a couple of places now.

Step 6: Finito!

The final image of the completed head,with details and paint and good looks, oh my!

And that's how she does it, folks ;). Just use your imagination and be creative, any old piece of junk can be fitted to the body of a robot somehow, be it plastic tubes or old wire, or a little sticker. It's your job to figure out what else it could be, in your imagination. Good luck.

    I hate to have to point out the obvious, but this is not a robot.

     Amen, this is not a robot.  A robot must respond to stimuli, and this just sits there. That is why it is titled a "prop." Still, it looks nice. Good work!

    is to, or you could call it a droid?

    "is to"? (sigh) No, these are not instructables for a robot, a droid, or even a remote controlled prop. As the author said, it is a life size prop. In fact, it is a great life size prop. With that said, the title implies that these are instructables for making a robot, which is the reason I clicked on the link. This prop can do nothing on its own except maybe fall down, which would be due to gravity more than anything else. I would like to see the instructable on making a life size robot! Still, it is a great life size prop. I just object to the misleading title.

    well he did say prop

    The original title didn't say it was a prop and that was what a couple of us were objecting to. Currently it says "Life Size Robot Prop" which is a better descriptive title.

    You're fighting sea of stupidity in a dinghy. You're fighting a losing battle, against the moronic, my firend. Please, just stop encouraging them, and shake it off.

    oh I see my apologies

    ok, it is asom, and dos not move,but i would still call it a robot

    I'd call it a robot prop - this isn't a robot, still quite awesome, but not a robot :)
