is the first ever STRAWBOT
. He's named after the straws that build his spine and connect his joints. The slightly over-sized straws from Harvey's restaurants have helped to start a robot revolution. Once upon a time a quick slight of hand could swipe a few extra straws into a take-out bag. Now, boxes of straws by the thousands, fuel the production of what will soon become a robot army.
Okay.....timeout. I got a little carried away there.
Anyway, you can build your very own Harvey 1.0 STRAWBOT
with this short list of materials and tools:
Harvey's black straws
Standard 1/4" flexible straws
Craft foam (any colour you choose)
Hole punches (1/4", 1/8")
Please note that the tutorial videos start after all of the pieces have been cut out. I'm relying on you to accurately cut and punch out the pieces using the provided templates. For a few added suggestions
