I was just wondering if the instructable robot has a name anyone know?

He is called the Instructables Robot, often shortened to just Robot.

ah so not like Timmy or jimmy or anything
Nope, just Robot.
That's not very glamourous...
At BookCrossing.com we had a contest to think of and choose a name for the mascot. Maybe something like that would be fun to do here, as well.
The topic does come up for discussion every once in a while.
Of course, any name change will now have to be approved by the Autodesk Board of Directors and scrutinized by the corporate lawyers.
sorry but when I saw that picture I just had to....
(that was actually why I was wondering
instead of "Washington" I was going to put the name)
There was once a discussion of how members should be compensated for creating ibles. It seems the Robot buck is still worth as much as the paper it is written on...even less if compared to Euros, more if compared to drachmas.

Wow, there's no sign of a contest yet and your entry is already in! :-D
Nah, the kid did that a long time ago for my light up drawing board ible. But Robot themed contests are always good. https://www.instructables.com/community/Instructabl...
Btw, what is the bookcrossing running book mascot's name?
He's called Ballycumber.
Ballycumber is the name of a town in Ireland; it's also been defined by the writer Douglas Adams as "one of the six half-read books lying somewhere in your bed."
Caitlin has one of six dozen half-read books lying all over the place. I call it book litter but it's all good.
