Robots for Writing

Last week, as a side project, using a bunch of plastic storage bins, buckets, kitchen utensils and assorted odds and ends, I cobbled together this trio of robots as decorative "staff" for the new robot store based at, and benefitting, 826michigan which runs a lot of writing workshops and tutorials for kids.

The robots were fun to make, and pretty easy to put together, though those plastic storage bins are really difficult to cut without causing them to shatter. These three robots were built over the course of about a day and a half. The taller two stand at about three-feet tall, which fit the requirements of the space they'd be occupying.

I wish I'd had the time to make more.

Thanks for sharing. I love using "found objects" in my work and has saved the budget on many a project too.

When you get a chance to make a robot for a job...that's the sweet life.

They look great!
