Let's Make Robots!

DDHCBoB! (Developmentally Disabled HandiCap BoB)

Apologies to K120 for his outstanding design that I mangled or to anyone else who may be offended. (Which would be most people...)

DDHCBoB is proud to be one of the first of the BoB army but sadly he lost his legs in a tragic pole-vaulting accident during the summer robolympics as well as suffering traumatic uC damage in a paragliding accident the following month. Poor BoB languished around the lab for most of the year suffering constant taunts early on from our lab assistant Amanda (La Tostadora!) but he endeavoured to perservere. A true hero to all broken and forgotton robots lying lifeless and neglected on workbenches around the world!

Surprisingly, Amanda became DDHCBoBs staunchest ally during his road to recovery. Dragging parts and components as well as the HOT GLUE gun to his lonely corner of the lab she gently prodded me into repairing the dejected little robot. Perhaps it was the image of these fragile little machines coming together out of mutual respect or admiration for one another or maybe it was because Amanda threatened to let the smoke out of my soldering iron but something spurred me to action!


During DDHCBoBs convalescence he discovered that his parasailing accident left him deathly afraid of heights. In fact, any height above 3/8" left him shuddering and smoking so better stronger faster legs were out of the question. Thankfully, basile came to the rescue with the BASWHEEL! which both BoB and Amanda quickly developed a disturbing affection for...

Initially DDHCBoB was slated to receive wheels only but repeated threats by Amanda against the hellhounds dongle forced me to reconsider legs for poor acrophobic BoB.
