Mech-Walker
(UnPlugged)

 

Omni-Wheels
4 Wax-Band Motors
Polymorph Bushes
Road-Kill Reflector
Tooth-pick Stabilisers
PaperClip-Hub

 No Batteries, No servos, No Processors were used in its construction -

- the only metal bit i used was a small paper clip to attach the 4 elastic bands to the center Hub.

 The Turret can be wound up and it will slowly unwind spinning the turrent plus is shooters.

Each leg has to be wound up.

If you wind them up the same way it goes around in a circle.

If you wind 2 legs up the same way and the third one in the opposite direction - it acts as an Omni wheel and the Mech-Walker will walk forwards - is that not cool - it impressed the heck out of me anyway.

 

 

 

 Take one long cardboard tube.

4 peices of flat PolyMorph cut into circles and drill centers out.

make four wax motors see "look no batteries"

Spraypaint everthing silver

Paint black and yellow legs

Assemble it all together.

 Wind it up and let it go.

It will walk for over 5 minutes on one wind up.

You're raising the bar for LMR's video production expectations,, though.

Now that's entertainment!!!

Pity you had video of me on a bad hair day :D 

Glad you enjoyed - hope it will stir up the "LMR Monkey House Rabble" to get out the scissors and hot glue.

NB. For those who have not been "Monkey-Fied" yet please be patient - the end credits are not so easy to update.
