Introduction: Video Prop. Small Robot "P.E.R.I"
During the late 80s there was a TV show called "Jason Of Star Command" and he had a little robot that helped him out of trouble. This is an altered copy I made of it: Its' for use in a video I am working on. I changed the color from washed-out blue to red and changed the name from W.1.K.1. to P.E.R.I. The robot walked and "Flew" via fishing line. This model was not made to walk but it can be "flown" by stringing transparent fishing line through the tiny tubes glued to its sides. The original had a flashing LED eye and so does this one... But THIS one has a flashing Blue/Red LED I pulled from a cheap dollar store toy. It is 4 1/2 inches long and 2 1/4 inches tall and wide. I am also building a series accurate W.1.K.1. and will be posting the build pics in about three days.
