Someone I know is fanatic of DOR-15 (or DORIS), the evil robo-hat from the "Meet the Robinsons" movie. So, this is my first attempt for making one. This is a vibrobot made with the hat of a Mr. Potato Head. When I find a bigger hat, I will try to make a walker one.

MATERIALS:

1 Mr. Potato Head hat
1 cap from a phone horn
1 camera len (I use one from a damaged security camera)
6 butterfly clips (I use 8 because I want an octopod Mini DOR-15)
1 toy motor
1 Playstation joystick motor eccentric weight (or you can make your own eccentric weight using a plastic or metallic piece)
1 Big red LED.
1 switch
2 LR1 batteries
1 LR1 batteries holder
2 iron pieces
red and black wire
screws and bolts
Tin soldering

TOOLS

Dremel Rotary Tool
tweezers
screwdivers
scalpel
pliers
Wire cutters
Screwdriver kit
Soldering Iron
Super Glue


And don't forget the classic building rules (plus one):

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock.
6. Enjoy.

Step 2: The hat

Dismantle the damaged security camera. We need the len.

Open a hole in the front of the hat and insert the len. It has to fit by pressure. Use superglue if it doesn't fit exactly.

Step 3: The legs

Bend the clips on the way indicated on the pictures and insert them in the phone cap. Open new holes if necessary.

Fasten the clips using screws and bolts.

Open an entry on the front of the cap for accommodating the len of the hat.

Step 4: Electronics (LED)

The electronics are similar to the used in the "Cyborg Heart in a Can" instructable:

Open a holeon the phone cap. It will be for the switch.

Insert the big red LED into the len. Solder wires and a 220ohm resistor.
This is incredible! I just love that movie! Your Instructable this worthy of Lewis.

This is awesome. My son and I love that movie. This would creep him the hell out, i'm sure, but I need to try and make this. His emotional well being be damned!
M.C. Langer (author)  Nick705872 years ago
Thanks Nick! And good luck making it!

MC, I think this has GOT to be your best work yet! You truly nailed the unique design of the character and dare I say, improved upon it in about a thousand other ways.

Ill be hoping for a walking Mark III from you! Have you looked into plastic bowler party hats? Those might provide for necessary spacing.
M.C. Langer (author)  SHIFT!2 years ago
Thank you very much Shift! Well, I will search for the hats you say. Or something similar. And some pieces for making the legs more sharp. :-)

You could make it look like a lady bug by painting red dots on it. I like lady bug robots. Sunshiine

Well, I tried to make a mini version of this Disney's character
DORIS.jpg
I guess I missed that! I will try and watch the movie on Netflix when it is available. We don't watch TV anymore so what I get is online for everything. I can't wait to see the movie!
