Looking for a way to build yourself a functional AT-ST walker? Have I got the perfect robot for you.
The AREXX YT-3000 (aka “YETi Walker”) is a bi-pedal robot which can be programmed using your PC or an remote-controlled via an IR interface.
While I’d rather have a lifesize Optimus Prime, I might just have to settle for this R/C robot that can transform itself into a car, truck or tank.
The RCRC Transforming Robot from AOK can go from ‘bot to vehicle with a quick flick of two joysticks on the included remote control.
These little toy robot kits from Japan do one thing and one thing only. They beat the crap out of each other.
Tamiya’s Robocraft boxing robots come in a kit that’s easy enough to assemble if you know your way around a screwdriver.
Why is it that Japan gets all the coolest toys? I mean really, why can’t I walk into the neighborhood store and pick up one of these?
Coming this December from Bandai Japan, this remote-controlled Mechagodzilla robot is truly a sight to behold.
It’s not that I haven’t seen robotic sculptures before, but I can say with confidence that I’ve never seen any as intricate as Jeremy Mayer’s incredible typewriter robots.
Mayer builds his amazingly detailed sculptural creations entirely from parts found on old typewriters.
These robotroyshka dolls are one tricky mashup: they combine Russian nesting dolls, crochet, and robots into one deliciously adorable blend.
I spotted these on the crafster forums. The ever-clever RhymeswOrange crocheted them by hand, and each one has a different felty face!
Affirmative. Yes, affirmative. I must have a pair of these metallic robot lamps flanking the sides of my bed.
With a retro style reminiscent of a 1950s robot movie (or Jemaine and Bret dressed in tin foil wrapped cardboard boxes depending on your point of view), these nifty bedside lamps are actually made out of ceramic with a metallic silver coating.
If you’ve been on the lookout for a colorful ‘bot to guard your desk, check out this cool handmade Slobot sculpture.
All of the Slobots made by crafter Slobot are handmade and one-of-a-kind, with no molds used.
I’m a sucker for robots – and I love cool lamps. So when I saw these cool robotic sculptures that light up, I just had to write about them.
Handcrafted by Pennsylvania artist Toby Atticus Fraley, these robot sculptures are assembled from vintage found objects (aka “Junque”), and lovingly reconfigured by Fraley to form one-of-a-kind artworks.
We’ve already seen not one but two iterations of Space Invaders undies for dudes, so it’s high time we let the ladies in on this brave new world of geeky underpants. Behold: the robot-themed bra and underwear set.
I was surfing around in search of this desktop R2-D2 mini USB can fridge that I recently read about, when I happened upon something much, much cooler than that cooler.
Turns out that this awesome R2-D2 compact refrigerator was apparently made back in 2002 as a promotional prize for an Attack of the Clones contest held at 7-11 Stores in Japan.
I was tooling around over at Chicago’s Bucktown Arts Fest this past weekend, and thought to myself, what are the chances that I’ll actually stumble onto any good geeky crafts? But lo and behold, the first booth I step into had these great handmade robot ceramic cups.
Have you been alienating friends by over-twittering and now need a substitute robot friend to pal around with? Good news, because as of right now, making this talking robot head is well within your reach.
This nifty bot was made by L.
Sure, these little robots might not be able to drop-kick or head a soccer ball – but that doesn’t mean they’re not cool. This mini robot soccer (or football depending on your homeland) game looks like lots of fun for you and your friends when you need a break from slaving away in your cubicles.
This guy made a sweet little DIY balancing robot that balances without the help of fancy gyroscopes. It’s kind of like a poor man’s version of the Segway-esque A.M.P.bot, the main difference being that this one falls down a lot.
This is a pretty sweet autonomous robot that employs pencil erasers as bumpers. It’s called No. 2, Champion Autonomous Mini-Sumo Robot (a name that just rolls off the tongue, no?)
It was made by David Cook (not the American Idol winner, though, it’s a different David Cook.)
