Main-Robo

Here is a very territorial One-Eyed-Bot. He’s intent on zapping a Wee-Bot that has strayed into his personal space. Luckily for the little guy he’s pursuing, he moves very slowly with those cumbersome tri-pod legs, and his tiny T-Rex hands are practically useless. All the Wee-Bots know to steer clear of it’s extended whipping tail with it’s electrically charged tip. Sadly, One-Eyed-Bot-taunting has become a popular sport among Wee-Bots, and a singed butt simply a badge of honor. Hmmm…so who’s the bully?

I love making junk-bots. Call me crazy, but old junk inspires me. I tried joining in on Alpha Bots! and was keeping up with making a robot for each letter of the alphabet. Then I had made a “kaboom bot” with an explosion coming out of it’s head for the letter K and was ready to post it when the bombings happened in Boston. My timing stunk. Luckily I didn’t post it but I lost my momentum and stopped making them. Junk-bots A-I can be seen on my earlier posts.

It’s been ages since I participated on IF. When I saw this week’s topic, I had to join in on the fun. I love ALL of your illustrated robots!!

GigundoBot
Calling Gigundo Bot very large would be an understatement. He is a walloping, tremendous, super-colossal monster robot. Just the sight of his massive figure causes panic in the streets. In the right hands, he can be an invaluable asset to heads of governments and superpowers. When things get out of control they call on Gigundo Bot. He solves the really big problems. If a dictator in a foreign land mistreats his own people and threatens neighboring countries, the people call on Gigundo Bot. If an oil spill is spreading out of control putting delicate ecosystems at risk, they call on Gigundo Bot. If elected officials protect the super rich and hold the country hostage instead of doing the right thing for average citizens, Gigundo Bot is the one they call on.

You go Gigundo Bot!

So if you find you need help with a larger than life problem, you can call on Gigundo Bot. Or you can visit Alphabots! where you’ll find robots big and small ready to assist you.


eensyweensybot

The Eensy-Weensy bot went up the water spout, down came the rain and washed the bot out…and that is exactly what the function of the Eensy-Weensy bot is. With its tiny size and razor-sharp blade, it can fit into any pipe or spout and clear out your most stubborn organic clog. The patented flywheel chopping blade on top of its head can be programmed to pulverize any dense blockage in seconds, from leaves to limestone. The Eensy-Weesy bot is so efficient, pipes that haven’t been clear in years will be clean as a whistle in no time. Come on now, Eensy-Weensy bot, there’s a problem in the bathroom…then Grandma is next!

Disclaimer: Eensy-Weensy bot, its inventor and manufacturer, will not be held liable for the mis-use of their product. Must be operated by persons 18 years or older. Do not operate while drowsy or under the influence of a substance that may effect your judgment.

Be sure to visit Alphabots! where you can see other robots ready to serve your needs.


Dogbot

Sit boy…stay…good Dogbot! Now you can eat your favorite crunchy meal of rusted nuts and bolts kibble. Later we’ll go to the dog park and maybe some of your pals like Astro, Santa’s Little Helper and Scooby Doo will be there!

What’s this on the rug Dogbot? No, Dogbot, No! It’s back to the scrap metal pile for you!

Be sure to visit Alphabots! where you’ll see plenty of house broken robots in alphabetical order.


CageBot

Here is installation number three in the Alphabots challenge of a robot for every letter of the alphabet. I recommend that you visit Alphabots to see the creative work being done over there.

Meet Cagebot. He’s feeling a little low and a bit fed up right now. The birds make fun of him all day long and taunt him with their chirps and tweets. He knows it’s because they’re free to fly, while he has to look at life through the bars of a cage. He’s tried to join in with their singing, but it just comes out like a rusty squeak.

The Cagebot sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the Cagebot sings of freedom.

It’s sacrilegious, I know, to make fun of the great Maya Angelou’s sacred poem. I feel just terrible about it.


Acro-Bot

A is for Acro-Bot.

This little guy is very good at juggling and walking a tightrope at the same time. He has also been known to ride a unicycle while making a ham sandwich.

I have been dabbling in robot assemblages lately. When I came across the AlphaBots! challenge I thought it would be fun to participate.

This Acro-Bot was made from found objects with some pencil drawings and Photoshop effects.
