Windup Robot

Introduction: Windup Robot

About: <3 Art&Tech, <3 MakerMovement, Teacher at Stadslab Rotterdam, Creative Media and Game Technologies, Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Windup Robot made from an example of the book

"Build your own robots, assemble 3 robots" by Steve Parker and Owen Davey

(in Dutch: "Bouw je robots, maak zelf drie robots die echt kunnen bewegen")

I made the drawings by scanning the original buildplates and redrawing them in Illustrator.

The original buildplates are made from carton.
