Introduction: Female Instructables Robot
In case you need an Instructables robot.
Because your male instructables robot gets lonely.
Because your four year old daughter asked for a girl robot.
This is my second instructable in my series, "The Way Women reMake Masculine Images in the Maker Movement," in which I am exploring the ways in which females take a feminine object (like a dress) and make it into something else with a masculine image (raygun) or a masculine object and make it into something else with a feminine image or object.
Specifically, I am exploring the feminizing of the masculine technology within the Steampunk and Science Fiction genres of the Maker movement.
