Introduction: Questionable Content's Happy Little Toaster

About: The answer is lasers, now, what was the question? If you need help, feel free to contact me. Find me on Reddit, Tumblr and Twitter as @KitemanX

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.

Found this a few weeks, stayed up all one night reading =) (it was the holidays)

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!

i love QC. that little toaster is one of the greatest things. when i get a toaster, I'm painting it like that.
