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

thank you very much for yer lovely comment!

Metal, your robots are outstanding. It reminds me a bit to the automata builder covered on makezine.com lately.

oh thank you very much Nils! yer robots are awesome as well! i have seen Dug North's blog before, and his automatons are quite great!

i can't seem to attach the file, i'll try it later.

You have to upload it to a website like Youtube or Vimeo.

hi patrick! well, i wouldn't want to upload it to youtube for some copyright claims, that's why i am posting it as a file.

Well the thing is 1) The maximum file size you can attach is 4MB and 2) Not many people would download it to watch it.

ok, i will upload it to youtube soon.
