Your robot overlord.
« on: May 01, 2015, 04:42:10 PM »
And so it began...
A quiet day at work. Thought I'd tidy out the electrical equipment stores. Got rid of a big pile junk and obsolete spare parts.

Looking at the stuff, it seemed such a shame to just chuck it away without at least seeing if some of it would fit together into something interesting...

Big mistake. It did...

I love it.  It turns out that none of it was junk after all.

I shall use this creative use of "stuff" as an example to defend my sqirrelling instincts.

Hey, Thanks for posting your robot of toss out stuff. Really creative and a fun project which I trust you had fun creating. Thanks again. Don't toss anything out as the day after you do you will find a use for it. At least that's what happens to me.   :zap:

If a dirty bed can win the Turner prize your robot is sure to win.

On second thoughts you probably haven't  got an arts degree so there's no chance. :lol:

Great work one rod :thumbup:
