Introduction: Robot Made of Broken Joysticks

About: I'm Mario Caicedo Langer, from Colombia, former Navy officer and BSc in Naval Sciences. I am a STEAM teacher and an artist focused on junk art; making toys, crafts, props and simple robots, using e-waste, plas…

Vibrobots have a good thing and a bad thing. The good thing: You can build a vibrobot even if you're bad in electronics and mechanics. The bad thing: If you only know to build vibrobots, soon you will get bored and frustrated of making always stuff with the same kind of motion.

This is a vibrobot (as the shown in https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-vibroinsects-using-discarded-mice-Go-Team-M/) with a LED lighting its eye. The main material are broken joysticks. The lower body is the main part of a broken generic joystick, and the legs and arms are made of the handlers.


I called it the A.N.T. (Armored Nerd Technology). It was made with Genius joysticks (and no Barbie). This time, the eccentric weight is the gaitling gun.

    Я не маньяк. Я очень функционируют пограничное расстройство личности. Сделайте свое исследование.

    Ouch!  That's gotta hurt!  Something about this piece, Barbie(r) vs. killer droid here, reminds of an old movie, Hardware.   It was from the 80s.  No wait. Technically it was the 90s.  IMDB says 1990, and other info, here:
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099740/
    Anyway that's a pretty disturbing looking robot you've got there.  More so because I think it bears a certain resemblance to the killer droid in that movie.  Probably just a coincidence though.  Now I'm gonna try not to have nightmares about that hellish thing.

    Sorry, but I don't know about electronics. I'm the Reuse Guy! But if I know of someone who knows, I will tell him.
