About: Mobile + Web in Multimedia Arts at Berkeley City College is a Front-End Design and UI/UX Design incubator in Berkeley California. Our classes prepare students to enter the tech community after graduation ...

We've all been there. You're sitting at your desk, staring into the middle distance, unsure how to proceed with the pile of work you have to finish. What you need is inspiration. What you need is:


CareBot, the Inspiraton robot, will give you just that little push you need to power through your day.

CareBot displays messages from your friends, loved ones or even from yourself, that you can display at home, work or even the dashboard of your car.

"Love you"

"Feel Better"

"I'm gonna make a million with my app!"

CareBot also changes emotions based on the content of the message.

Let's face it, in this fast paced world, it's sometimes hard to find a friend. Isn't it nice to know that CareBot will always be there for you?

Note: Be careful to only cut on straight lines. Dashed lines indicate folds. Don't cut out CareBot's face or message area.

Step 2: Fold and Cut

Cut along line A and Line B, taking care to cut only on the solid lines.

Cut T shaped line (line C) along the middle of the bot.

Step 3: Fold and Tape

Fold along dotted lines to create the legs and tape. They should form two square columns.

Form the body and tape. It should be slightly rounded and sit centered over the legs.

Fold top of head and tape to rear of body.

Step 4: Arms, Face and Message

Cut out left and right arms. Fold on dotted line and tape to create arms.

Tape arms to Bot body.

Cut out the bot face that most closely matches your message and affix to Bot or draw in your own.

NOTE: You may want to write in your message before you begin to assemble the bot. Some possible messages include:

“Happy Birthday Uncle”

“Mazel Tov on your Divorce!”

“I am so Awesome!”
