Guy Creates Life-Size Functional WALL-E Robot

homemade-wall-e.jpg

Mike Senna of California spent an estimated 3,200 - 3,800 hours over two and a half years building this full-scale, functional WALL-E robot from scratch. He talks, rolls around, moves his arms and eyeballs, but can't compact trash. He will melt your heart though. Probably with a hidden laser blaster. Never trust the cute ones.

Hit the jump for a worthwhile video of the EVE lover in action.

Thanks to PFC Smith, Jessicow and Brian, who agree the cute robots are the ones you have to worry about the most.

    LOLZ look what happened to me xD

  • That guy is amazing.. taking Wall-E and R2-D2 to see kids who are ill is such a nice thing to do.

  • Agreed. A true wizard in my book.

  • Matty Spinny

    awesome! mad props to who made this

  • I thought it was "Kill 'em with KINDNESS"... not "kill 'em with cuteness"
    Seriously tho, I wanna smash his adorable robot face in. Twice.

  • There are forums where guys like Mike get together and discuss and build Wall-E, R2D2 and other robots, its a pretty extensive and intense community of makers coming together to tackle the problems of making these things. MAKER also has some video from their last fair where Mike and some other guys where showing off the Wall-E and r2's. Pretty incredible work and the reasons they are doing the work are even better, doin it for the kids.

  • So cute - and so well made.

  • Impressive! I've never show any project that much dedication.

    FIRST

    when being a loser just isn't enough, there you are

  • No need for insults. Yelling "First!" (and subsequent seconds and thirds etc.) used to be a staple on Geekologie's comment section. a sort of running joke. Even if it wasn't, it in no way signifies that someone is a loser. Just an unoriginal comment.

    being a firstard... a staple of geekologie? a running joke? You're oblivious if you really think so, you truly have no idea. Firstardness not only screams to the world "Ive got nothing to contribute so I'll take an easy FAIL out" .......no, one could not fail anymore in such an annoying, overplayed, unoriginal manner - and you're defending it as if it's a 'running joke'. Pathetic beyond description
