When I was growing up, my parents let me watch pretty much any movie I wanted when it came out on VHS. One of my favorites was RoboCop. Something about a cyborg robot with a gun that came out of his thigh was very appealing to my younger self.
The prolific custom action figure maker John Mallamas aka Jin Saotome tips his hat to the RoboCop vs. Terminator video games (which in turn were based on the comic book miniseries) with this badass RoboCop T-800.
Maker Daniel Rojas came up with an affordable – albeit smaller – alternative to Biegert & Funk’s prohibitively expensive QLOCKTWO word clocks. Daniel made it using an 8×8 LED matrix, an ATMega 328p microcontroller and a DS1307 real time clock.
