My family has a tradition: nobody throws nothing to the garbage can before I decide if I could use it for building stuff. So, thanks to my mom, my stepfather, my brother, my uncles and cousins, I have a workshop full of... trash.
One day, I was playing with my trash looking for something to build. I wanted to turn an orange Gatorade pot (donated by my brother) into a planter. I had two orange plastic small pots (from my mom's medicine) and a lot of feet deodorant caps (from all my family's men). Mmmmm... good, but still missing something. Then, I noticed the garbage can top donated by my aunt Maria Isabel ("You could make an astronaut!", she said). I put it above the Gatorade pot.
The project "Baby Samus" born.
In this instructable, you will learn how to build a baby-like Samus Aran (the main character from the Metroid videogames and Nintendo's best heroine) toy using plastic trash. Basically, it's a vibrobot, with a light "beam" from its arm.
But this time, is not a solo project, because my family is involved. Everyone made a huge contribution for baby Samus. In the Step 1, you will meet my Design Team!!!
My family and I have a great time making this instructable. Even, we had to work on the carpet because the desk wasn't big enough for us. I expect you and your family have the same great fun!!!!
