RoboSteel which is a unique company based in Ireland, has brought to this year’s Gadget Show Live one of their latest steel sculptures, a 2.5 meters tall Optimus Prime. RoboSteel’s sculptures are all hand welded and not casted, as anyone will be able to appreciate, these sculptures are finished to an excellent level of craftsmanship.
According to their website, larger sculptures can contain thousands of individual parts, and all materials used in construction are recycled from cars, motorbikes and airplanes. The materials used are virtually 100% steel. Occasionally small amounts of copper and ceramic material are used to create the desired effect. The applied lacquer is acrylic based. All material used are Non toxic.

The beginning of a real lightsaber!? The “Z Plasma” Saber featured in the video below isn’t actually using just water to cut through steel, it uses a combination of alcohol too. Unlike conventional cutting machines, this one doesn’t require any gas compression or cooling system and emits just water vapour. Sources say this badboy can reach up to 8000 degrees, this sounds remarkable but very hard to believe considering the man handling it in the video has his hand just a few inches away from the tip of the flame itself. The Z Plasma saber will be later available from Reitec Japan.
