Day 317 – Puppet Bot

Look at it. Just…. look at it. I’m tempted to carry it around and let it talk for me for awhile. Time to brush up on my (non-existent) ventriloquism skills!

I should probably post a video of it in action!

Day 269 – David Suzuki Bot

Normally, I try to stay away from doing bots based on real people, but my brother’s been pulling for a David Suzuki bot for a long while now.

Though I don’t think this particular image is what he had in mind.

I’m tricky like that.

Don’t get it? David Suzuki is a Canadian Super Genius of Science and Being Awesome. Famously, he appeared clad only in a leaf on the cover of TV Guide in 1999; at which time he was 64. I’m not really sure what that has to do with saving the planet, though. But hey, if he ever decides to take up a superhero costume, we know spandex is a good option.

Day 224 – William Tell Bot

One thing I hadn’t anticipated when creating Robot a Day was how many arrows I’d have to make!

Day 221 – Robin Hood Bot


Yay! Another theme week! This time around, the theme is FOLK HEROS (or, Historical Figures with Dubious Historical Accuracy). Because we can make up more amazing things about a person than that person could ever do. 100 years after I die, I really hope that I live on in some sort of folk hero capacity- maybe they’ll say my bots were real, and took over the world, programming world peace into the unruly population of hu-mans. And that I was 8 feet tall and rode a golden robotic unicorn. That shot lasers out of its eyes.

It could happen.

So today’s bot is Robin Hood. And although some people think differently, Robin Hood didn’t actually exist (look, some people think they were King Arthur in a previous life, so people = basically gullible). Yes, he may have been based on a few real life outlaws (who, presumably, were men who wore tight tights), but they probably weren’t particularly merry men. And they probably did rob from the rich, but the poor they gave to was likely themselves. Historical accuracy is a bit of a drag sometimes, eh?

Day 176 – Dapper Gentleman Bot

Well, I say! Who is that fine fellow sporting such a dapper houndstooth suit? I wager he’s a rather fine dressing lad indeed! Jolly good, capital! Capital!

Day 147 – Ukelele Bot

Okay, Ukeleles. Ukeleles are, dare I say it, more awesome than guitars (even flying V guitars. It’s true). We had a wee ukelele kicking around the house when I was growing up, and for the longest time I actually thought it was a tiny guitar made for really little people. Seriously- like for teeny foot tall people or something (Look, there was this book, about a kid who found a teeny tiny city and then some mysterious teeny people and there was something about a white snake, and he lost part of his little finger, and the people all disappeared, and he woke up back at school thinking it was all a dream, but his finger was still missing). The point is, eventually, somehow, I discovered the Ukeleles are not mini guitars made for foot high people, and that there isn’t actually a bunch of foot high people running around in need of guitars anyways. It was about that time that I also discovered that ukeleles are, in fact, totally awesome.

What else is totally awesome? This song, by Zoe, featuring a ukelele and a robot:



and also, this one too, which also features moustaches:



(yes, these videos were on Boing Boing, the insanely popular and fantastic blog of wonderful things. There are like, 3 of you, dear readers, who don’t read Boing Boing- the videos are posted for your benefit)

Day 84 – Suspiciously Sinister Facial Hair Bot

You just KNOW this bot is planning something sinister.

It’s the moustache that tells you.

See how it’s curly?

That’s the sinister gene (also responsible for triangle-shaped goatees, the secondary characteristic of sinisterocity).

Day 16 – Gnomebot

Gnomebot helps take care of the forest animals, rides a squirrel to work, and drinks mead out of a thimble. I’m hoping he knows some fairybots, so that when I go into the studio some morning, all my work will already be done.

this bot is available in a limited edition of 10, right here.
