Introduction: Evil Robot of Doom!

I made this thing today using parts from 2 hard drives, a old Sony CD player, an RC car, sim cards, a lighter and a pinewood derby car. It is equipped with motors to make it move, a flamethrower and a light-up face with LED. I can get the flame from the flamethrower much bigger but my lighter was running low.

    If you ever end up modding, here's a suggestion: Try replacing the flamethrower with two upside-down cans of air. You now have a cryo-thrower! (it will actually create frost on a sprayed object.)

    I know I'm a little over a year late, but use the flame thrower to light off a bunch of bottle rockets.

    that looks evilishly doomish and could be a leader of robot anarchy. keep it in a cage.

    No, there is no programming because I just wanted it to be simple, it just drives around and usually gets stuck on things. :P

    Unfortunately it's manual, but if I really wanted to I could make it button operated.

    Just take apart a cheap stick lighter and find the little hose in it. Then hook that hose up to a can of bullet Axe.
