This robot may not be one that can help serve your granny her afternoon tea but from the gentleman who brought you Lego built Wall-E robot clone with realistic eye movements two years ago now comes his latest DIY release Wall-E 5. This time, the Canadian Marc-Andre Bazergui has not only managed eye movements but everything else from transforming between a trash can to arm movements.
Morning everyone, here’s another episode of geeky food to start off a mouth watering morning for you all. This adorable Wall-E life sized cake appeared at the national ICES convention in Orlando, Florida. It was baked by brothers Edward and Antoni Frys of the European Cake Gallery, located in Texas.
So how about that for a cake, I’m sure those geeky enough would love to order one of these for special occasions like weddings, hey we’ve seen this happen before!
Check out this Wall-E robot clone built of Lego! Though this robot is made of Lego and won’t look or sound as genuine as the one you’ve seen in the movie, it’s always incredible (I think) to see people bring Lego to life simply by putting abit of brain power and engineering skill into the good old plastic blocks…
Youtube user Bazmarc, a 41-year old from Canada who works in IT is a serious Lego fan who enjoys Lego Robotics building and programming. Just very recently he posted a series of videos showing his totally cool implementation of the WALL-E robot constructed completely from stock Lego NXT Mindstorms robot system parts. Not only is the robot realistic, it also features some very emotional and touching eye movements.
Bazmarc’s robot creation does use some third party components, like Mindsensors and HiTechnic – both Lego certified though!
According to some comments on his videos, the robot uses…
“1 NXT with rechargable pack, 3 Servo Motors, 4 PF motors, 2 IR receiver, 1 UltraSonic sensor, 1 sound sensor, 1 IRlink, 1 NXTservo module and 1 mini RC servo, 10 AA batteries and Lego from the Bulldozer #8275 and other parts from various technic sets.”
