Introduction: IRobot Create Death Machine

Picture of IRobot Create Death Machine

Today, I'm going to show you how to create an iRobot Create Death Machine.

WARNING: This project is very dangerous. Do not attempt this project without all possible safety precautions. You may be killed by this machine if you wonder into it's path.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
You will need:

  • One iRobot Create
  • One VERY pointy stick, or pencil
  • Tape
  • Laser pointer (optional - for aiming)

Step 2: Assembly

Carefully place the pencil on top of the iRobot as shown. Tape it down with two or more pieces of tape.

Step 3: Unleash the Fury!

Turn the robot on, and let it roam on your setting of choice. Be warned, keep loved ones out of the area while the robot is stalking it's prey. As seen in the video, I narrowly dodged my death by robot.

Man, did that thing hurt! The things I do for instructables...

It really sounded fake.

Replace the pencil with a powerful laser and you'll have a robot that can burn your house down.

i know you're not going to win this competition....mainly because this is junk...but secondly (and more importantly) because there are actual irobot instructables posted why waste time on making a video of this?

You might notice that this is the second irobot instructable i've made.

shoulda stopped at the first :P

We'll see who's talking when you're attacked and only have a create, a really point stick, and a few pieces of tape to defend your self with.

hehe the irony is that you'd probably do more damage to your attacker by chucking the robot at him...with or without the pencil hehehe

ah, but with this, you can set it down and run...the attacker will be afraid to chase you in fear of their own lives.

Why is this moron insulting the Death Machine! what if it attacked him??

Maybe it should ;)

This Inst is a fail.

Derin (author)A good name2008-07-13

i dont think so

jeffconnelly (author)Derin2008-08-19

Yeah, this totally makes me think of what would happen if the taliban had irobot creates and pencils

Madrias357 (author)jeffconnelly2009-07-08

I'd fight back with an army of robots powered by Basic Stamps and hobby parts, all traveling at 30 miles per hour, courtesy of brushless motors. And I'd have them shoot bottle rockets.

not in the least! My motto is : If it lasserates or detonates, i want it mobile and i want it leathile. it works.

Me thinks it should.

Hmm, ill post something in a while that some of you may like, my entry for robogames '09, their newest competition where u fight two or four legged robots that have airsoft weopons to shoot pressure plates on the enemy, but you can only veiw the battle from you onboard camera, and it will be controlled using my computer, :( im gunna need to write a c program for controlling it, not to mention the programming for the actually robot itself, with 6 servos a leg, 2 legs, the upper body pan and tilts to aim the gun, man this thing is going to be sweet when its done, right now i need to add the gun and make my computer controlle. ill try to get this posted within a few weeks, and if anyones giong be sure to watch for me at robogames!
