Life-size Wood & Cardboard T-800: Termite Hater

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 10, 2015


We’ve seen a full T-800 skeleton made out of LEGO. YouTuber Kaled Souky aka jaled79 proves that you can also make a decent Terminator animatronic out of balsa wood and cardboard too.

This isn’t just any motionless statue either. Kaled managed to make the model’s head and arms move with the help of an Arduino Pro 328, servos and pulleys. The legs are not motorized and are mainly there to provide support (and look cool of course), though Kaled says they can be set in various positions. You can skip to around 2:35 in the video to see the model come to life.

Kaled hopes to someday sell flat-pack kits of his T-800. Check out his blog post or the video’s description on YouTube for more on his project.
