Introduction: Rubik’s Bot
Hey all, this is the Rubik's bot, the first ever robot in the form of a Rubik's cube. You might know the Rubik's cube, that toy where you have to get the same colors on the same side. Some of you may know how to solve it, so you must know that it takes a while to get the hang of it. This robot, however, is not just for solving. It's supposed to serve as a friend, one who can get the best out of you. In fact, it's capable of screwing with you or putting you back together. Whenever you may feel down or your mind is not right, this robot is capable of putting you back in place. For the younger folks, this robot can be a play figure, or like a doll. You will surely enjoy this robot, but make sure to respect it because it can screw you over.
Step 1: Constructing a Cube Net
Get a blank piece of paper and draw out a cube net like the one in the image. Each side is to be 1.50 inches long
(I would prefer drawing out the net in the middle of the paper, so that you don’t have to worry about space).
Step 2: Squares Within Squares
Here, you’ll have to make 9 smaller squares per each big square. Divide the larger squares by 3 to get 0.5 in and that’s how long each small square will be. Make sure to be as precise as you can and to draw defined lines.
Step 3: Outlining Phase
Here, you just need to outline the lines, so you have a clear distinction of each box and so that your cube can look like an actual Rubik’s cube.
Step 4: Coloring the Cube
Color each box using a different color. You can use whatever color you want, but I’d prefer the typical Rubik’s cube colors - yellow, white, green, blue, orange and red.
Step 5: Cutting Out the Net
Cut out the cube net and then fold each square so that later on it will be easier to put together.
Step 6: The Legs
Construct two rectangles with the dimensions 4 in by 1.50 in.
Step 7: The Legs (Continued)
Cut the two rectangles and roll them up into a tube like form. This will be used for the legs of the robot.
Step 8: The Arms
Construct two rectangle with the dimensions of 2 in by 1 in. These will be used for the arms of the robot.
Step 9: The Arms (Continued)
Color the arms in any color you'd like and then cut them out. Then, fold each rectangle a quarter inch.
Step 10: Assembling
You use tape to put the cube net together. Then, you get the tubes and put that on the bottom of the cube. They serve as the legs of the robot. You get the colored arms next and then you tape it to the sides of the robot. You've finished this project, and you are now ready to play with your Rubik's bot. Beware, however, this bot can scramble you!
