Introduction: Questionable Content's Happy Little Toaster
Questionable Content is one of my favourite web comics. I love the AI characters, and this happy little toaster is, well, one of the happiest.
I jusr had to make a model of him!
Step 1: What You Need
Obviously, you need a copy of the template (there are a choice of formats attached - the PDF & SVG formats both have four copies of HLAIT to the page).
You also need something to cut them out, paper glue, and patience, since the glueing is a little fiddly.
Step 2: Construction Is Easy...
The actual structure of HLAIT is very simple - it's a slightly-distorted cuboid.
The easiest way to make it is to cut it out, pre-crease all the folds and then glue together the main body.
Give the glue a chance to dry before gluing the top section in place. I found it easier to glue the edges of the top piece, rather than gluing the tiny tabs, and a cocktail stick proved very handy to poke stray tabs back into place.
Hold the top section in place for a while, and you're done - stand him on your monitor, next to your MoodMonster, or maybe they can have a game of ladder golf together...
When you've made your own Happy Little AI Toaster, please, upload a photo of him.
