what is the instructable robot's name? Answered

I was just wondering if the  instructable robot has a name
anyone know?


He is called the Instructables Robot, often shortened to just Robot.

That's not very glamourous...

At BookCrossing.com we had a contest to think of and choose a name for the mascot. Maybe something like that would be fun to do here, as well.

There was once a discussion of how members should be compensated for creating ibles. It seems the Robot buck is still worth as much as the paper it is written on...even less if compared to Euros, more if compared to drachmas.

Wow, there's no sign of a contest yet and your entry is already in! :-D

Btw, what is the bookcrossing running book mascot's name?

He's called Ballycumber.

Ballycumber is the name of a town in Ireland; it's also been defined by the writer Douglas Adams as "one of the six half-read books lying somewhere in your bed."


Caitlin has one of six dozen half-read books lying all over the place. I call it book litter but it's all good.

no thanks, I am part of the ibles witness protection program.
