First earn money and build your lovely robot. OR ask some foundations with your solid idea which may become useful for the society.

Well what do you do, when you want some thing, but lack the money to just buy it?

There is a a phrase, "beg, borrow, or steal," which refers to methods of acquisition that do not require money.

I was just kind of pondering that phrase, and I noticed the first two verbs in that phrase start with the letter "b" same as the verb "buy".

That verb that starts with "s", steal, that method might be problematic. It might be placed last in that phrase, because it is kind of a last choice, or last resort. The other methods, beg and borrow, should be considered first.

Then, just sort of letting my mind wander, it occurred to me there might be other "b" words, that should be in that list, like:

Barter? (Which is similar to Buy)

Build?

There's a good one, right? I mean, that's the Instructables ethos right there.

Actually, this line of thought about wanting a thing, and building that thing, but doing it without money, reminds me of an old song: "One Piece at a Time", by Johnny Cash.

It is a song about both building and stealing, specifically about a factory worker who builds his own car, slowly over several years, entirely from parts that he steals from the factory where he works.

Who knows? Maybe that song can give you some inspiration.

Lots of people like to make "junkbots" out of odds and ends that they find. That would be a good place to start :)
