Well, it’s 12 days left until my first Wall-E appearance EVER. We will be at this years annual HobbyMässan (Hobby Expo) in Stockholm. Its the biggest hobby event of the year and after almost 2 years of designing, building, re-designing and more building. Its finally time to show him off. The hardest part was designing the treads so that they not only look screen accurate but even roll. I can say this much without going onto too much detail that it may look simple and easy but its ALL built from scratch, EVERY single detail. When I built the R2’s many of the smaller details you can get from private makers here and there. Anyway, all I have left to do is finish the arms, finish up the eyes/head, install all the linear actuators and finally tidy up the electronics. Here’s the latest picture for those that are curious:
oh and by the way…I haven’t even announced to the organizers yet that I’m even bringing him so it should be fun to see everyones reaction.
