Introduction: Robot From an Inpropper Engagement

About: Build.Share.Destroy.Repeat. Follow me and try a few of my projects for yourself!

9 months ago I was on vacation in Disneyland, I was on the adult side drinking peach daiquiris and chatting with Goofy about how Disney should have cage matches when he recommends that I ride Space Mountain. Now I usually don't get upset, but I had already been on Space Mountain about 4 times already, and really I wasn't in the mood to hear any more of that dogs silly jimmer-jammer. I left Paradise Island and went roaming around the park. I must have passed out somewhere along the way because when I woke up I was by Epcot Centre with one of the animatronic characters from It's A Small World and a bag of Doritos. Not wanting to wake my new friend I quietly slipped away and escaped the park. On the flight home later that week I though I had closed a very confusing chapter of my life, until I heard a knock on my door.

I open the door and am confronted by a mess of eyes, wires, and legs. What proceeded was a story of how Esmeralda and I had conceived a love child on that night under the Epcot dome, and she had abandoned him on my doorstep to take care of. Personally I think this is a little unfair as Disneyland has much more to offer then I do, but he's here now and I'm trying to manage. He like eating and, well, that's it really, he eats. He likes printer toner, circuit boards, bugs, and if I'm not watching he'll eat my fingers!

The tricky part is he doesn't sleep, so I'm trying to find out when his downtime is so I can stuff him in a box and send him back to Disneyland.

    Mine was always flying around my room, leaving me at peace until he flew into my tv and drilled a hole right through it. After all the peace and quiet, I got mad so I chained him up with the miniature chains and attached a knex shackle to him. By the way he is made of knex.

    Heh, I like yours. I did a similar thing, except I assembled some leftover lego robot pieces and gave him wheels and little red lights that make him light up. His name is Pintsize. He looks incredibly evil in the night-time. My dog is afraid of him. The creepy thing is, last night, I heard an odd whirring noise, but I thought nothing of it and went back to sleep. I woke up this morning and the dog had been gutted and filled with marshmallows. I'm afraid to go to sleep.

    Next step... Laser toting security driod with a proximity RFID sensor. Walk in without the proper RFID tag and you just might get burnt. It's more or less a friend or foe system I'm working on. Poor little guy still needs some coding on it's seek AI. It keeps trying to run over the cat. Admittedly it is hysterically funny to watch it chase the animal. It's basically an RC tank without the radio control (except for WiFi for programming and viewing it's cameras)

    thanks gmoon! He turned out this way mostly because he's cylindrical, but it turned out ok! He's actually based on this idea I had after a night of too many perogies and homemade wine:

    I thought you said it was peppermint schnapps?

    Oooooooooooooooooookay... well, its a bit of a farfetched backround story (you could have come up with aomething a little more realistic). however, very nice piece of artwork and very nice slideshow.

    I bet he could have come up with something more realistic... ...but what do you want? Really, do you want him to lie? I put all the circuit boards and fans and ports together in a manner similar to what that little guy has, and, what-do-ya-know? I have a little robot following me around. Granted he's slow, the l.e.d.s and the laser are very intimidating. He just sat by my T.V., last night. All night. I didn't know what he was doing, but I assumed he was finding information. The bugger's learning. I came out of the bathroom, this morning, and he had burnt a hole in the T.V.! I'm afraid to look, but I think he grew a heat-sink for the laser...

    It took me while to catch him as once he starts chewing on the cooling radiator on the back of the fridge he's pretty much possessed. I managed to toss him out in the open and hold him down with my foot and snap this of his top:

    Okay, I have all the parts needed to make one, except a camera lens for an eye. Any idea where I could get one?
