Introduction: Stitch, the Desk Junkbot!

About: I'm Mario Caicedo Langer (M.C. for short), a Colombian STEAM educator living in Azerbaijan, BSc in Naval Sciences and former Navy officer. I am a CAD and 3D Printing enthusiast and an artist specialized in jun…

Stitch (named in honor of my sexy, smart and good friend Jennifer Hansen, AKA "Stitch Diva") is a desk junkbot with two LEDs as eyes (one red and one colour changing). Its body comes from a printer cartridge, its eyes come from a garden hose, its arms are from various plastic pieces, with pincers in one arm and a magnet in the other, and the legs are from building blocks.

You can have it in your desk, for post-its and clips... and for playing!!! :-)

    Nice! Did you weld the pieces together or glue them?

    Oven knobs are not the cheapest thing so I found a place that had 5 spare ones bought them for a couple bucks. I built a foundry (been wanting to for years) and cast me some duplicates from scrap aluminum. I want to build a Stitich but since he sits on a desk I found in my junk drawer a little mini stapler and as luck would have it its yellow that would make a nice claw. Deffinately want the magnet though. These things rule M.C.
