Let's Make Robots!

Robot video competition

'Making of' FOBOT Video

I've been quite busy & I know it's coming in a bit late, but for interests sake here is some of the background footage behind my OddBot Video Challange entry.

 

Starformers (featuring Oddbot, Fristl, and with courtesy of Chris the Carpenter for a really quick appearance)

 Well, this was supposed to be my entry for Oddbot competition, but i realized i stupidly misunderstood the rules... I thought that you could use a cardboard/wooden robot, but when i read the comments, i finally got that you have to use a cardboard robot... I thought the main rule was to make a funny video about robot, even if you don't use a real robot. (yes, sometimes things are a little hard to get when english is not your first language!)

So i guess i'm off competition, but i didn't want to think that i wasted my time so i post it anyway... 'hope you'll enjoy!

Stuntbot AKA Dreambot

This is my entry to Oddbot's Robot Video Competition. As it isn't a 'proper' robot i have put this in a blog post. 

The main chassis is made from wood, and the shell is made from cardboard. I'm nt sure what happened to the original shell we made, I think my friend who I was working with took i, and I got the main part. It was black and red, and designed a bit like a tank!
