UPDATE: THIS IS THE LINK FOR A WEBSITE CREATED FROM SCRATCH ( IN MICROSOFT EXPRESSION WEB 3) ABOUT PROJECT WALL-E (THE WEBSITE HAS MORE INFORMATION ON PROJECT WALL-E) PROJECT WALL-E  (Ignore the "how you can help" page)

I had just entered the field of robotics and thought I should take on a project. I wanted to use such beloved Disney character to bring about a message of recycling. Just imagine a world where instead of those giant and noisy street sweepers, we will have a Wall-E at every corner of our street. (The robots wouldn't be taking over our world but will be helping us live a cleaner life)

As you can see just by the images, all components are original (this has never been done before) and it took several weeks to create it. (If my final designs are replicated, it will take a lot less time)

Word of advice, engineering skills are not defined by your mistakes but how you fix them. (i.e. my tracks)
 
This is what my final stage looks like

p.s. As promised, more videos and images have been added

Step 1: Planning

The first thing I did was plan the measurements and the dimensions of each piece

I used blender, and opensource 3d animation program to render 3d meshes as a 2d image

You don't necessarily have to do this but it is beneficial to plan out everything before constructing

P.S. It is not necessary for your design to work out as you want them to; track system with gears I intended to create didn't work well so I redesigned the tracks with wheels

You should say more about the project in the intro, like why you made it, how long it took, if you encountered any strange problems, etc.

People like to know these things, especially for such an awesome project.
