Picture of PCB Wall-E for FREE!
This is my first Instructable so please BE NICE! I will be posting more later. This is what I do when I'm bored so enjoy it... :)

I'm going to show you how to make your own PCB Wall-E out of recycled PCB parts from a CRT monitor. Now you don't have to have a monitor for this. You can pretty much find these parts in any junk electronics you have.

Post pics of yours when you finish! If you make him better I'd like to see!

Step 1: Parts List

Love it! I'm a big fan of Pixar and Wall-E is one of my favourite of their characters, so the combination of him with PCBs is a combination of two of my main interests.

Have you made any other movie robots? How about Johnny 5 from Short Circuit?

nice idea to reused the electrical component from damage electrical instrument
100% agree :D and this is really a great idea.......
awww how cute!
I'm doing this no matter what. It's time to go to a yardsale, and buy some of those old computers, and salvage the parts needed to make WALL-E

lol would've been ironic if it was soldered

Would've been a little hard to solder everything together... lots of parts met plastic to metal, plastic to plastic, etc..

It's a good build! (swap the first and last images - 100_1318.JPG would look better on the front of this) - but I'm sort of uncomfortable with those power regulators not being used for something electrical I say that but I've got enough bits sitting around at home that I'm not using...
