Introduction: The Box Transformer

About: Im 17 years old. Member of FIRST robotics and The OLI Hacker space. Currently leading a team converting a wheelchair into a mars rover simulation robot at an explorer post. I love building new things. Please...

this is a box transformer. it transforms into a box again. all out of cardboard and hot glue and a few cardboard staples i found on a box. (99% recycled) the hot glue isn't recycled.

Step 1: Items

you will need a cardboard box you can fit in, a knife, hot glue, and 8 cardboard staples.

Step 2: Body and Legs

cut along one side of the box so its as long as possible and flat. put one flap up and mark were your feet are going to be. then cut a line in the middle to where your thigh so you can walk. then put a piece of card board over the feet (see pic)

Step 3: Arms

cut off 2 flaps ether side of each other around were your arms would be. the get 2 strips of cardboard  a little longer than the width of the flap.

Step 4: Head

take the 2 flaps where your heat will be and fold them so you can put a square on top and glue it.

Step 5: Tansforming Back Into a Box

just crouch down and let every thing fall in  place
