Let's Make Robots!

Mechanical Genie

Hello everybody! what i'm about to show you will gonna creep yer life out!...well sorta, let me introduce to you.......


well, where do i start, hmh, while watching an episode of "flapjack", a thing came to my mind...what if i make this creepy little character in this episode? then i begun to make some plans, this is what it really looked like:

and this is what mine looked like (note: he's not done yet, i stll haven't added he's box):

here are some pictures of his construction:

i created this head using my own homemade polymorph (homemade clay):

with a body and chassis made out of cardboard and popsicle sticks, oh and i also added it's mechanism, including my very own mechanical oscillator:

looking good with a beard, goatee, earings and a turban:

i still haven't added some details yet, but i will on the next update

btw, if you wan't to watch the whole episode where this character appeared, you can download it with the file that i have attached.

that's all for now! cheers! - ⁰ℨ

I have never heard of this show but I like the robot it's inspired. Very unique. I'm not sure which version gives me the willies more, your recreation or the original hehe

Nice work :)

building a good looking robot with some scrap parts :D

P.S.: this thing is definetely creepy :S

yeah, i know, it's creepy!

cool ;)


Yes this is great.  I reminded me to of some of the early automata (stole the spelling from Nils).  I seem to recall there was like a mechanical fortune teller.  This looks right up that line.  I also like the artistry you bring to your projects.  A++!

your right he is creepy

Does your father/mother know you cut up their credit card to move your robot's hands? :D

lol, we've got a lot of those cards!

I love the right-brain bent you take to your projects.  Your robots aren't just tools-they're works of art.
