Questionable Content is one of my favourite web comics. I love the AI characters, and this happy little toaster is, well, one of the happiest.

I jusr had to make a model of him!

Step 1: What You Need

Obviously, you need a copy of the template (there are a choice of formats attached - the PDF & SVG formats both have four copies of HLAIT to the page).

You also need something to cut them out, paper glue, and patience, since the glueing is a little fiddly.

Step 2: Construction Is Easy...

The actual structure of HLAIT is very simple - it's a slightly-distorted cuboid.

The easiest way to make it is to cut it out, pre-crease all the folds and then glue together the main body.

Give the glue a chance to dry before gluing the top section in place.  I found it easier to glue the edges of the top piece, rather than gluing the tiny tabs, and a cocktail stick proved very handy to poke stray tabs back into place.

Hold the top section in place for a while, and you're done - stand him on your monitor, next to your MoodMonster, or maybe they can have a game of ladder golf together...

When you've made your own Happy Little AI Toaster, please, upload a photo of him.

Haha, when I came across it, I spent days and days reading through it to get caught up to the current issues.

Well, you see, that's where you're going wrong!

It wouldn't necessarily be an easy build, and as much as I'd love to I know it wouldn't turn out too well... I think we'll have to tell Jessy in on the deal!
