One too many for robot.

Pattern cut into an old LP record.  This one is called "Organ Music."  The title of the actual LP is "Organ Moods at Midnight."  Perfection.

Good morning, #MakerCamp !  For today’s #makermonday   project, we’re going to be building robots out of...well...whatever we can scrounge up!

[A caveat to start: we probably won’t end up with real robots, but they’ll look cool and they’re fun to show off]

Step 1: Figure out what size you want your robot to be, because this will determine what kinds of materials you use. Do you want to make a band of mini robot friends? Or a giant robot that can sit on your desk and glare at people?

Step 2: Time for the treasure hunt. Dig through your house, your garage, and your yard to find cool-looking stuff. Don’t take anything your parents or siblings will miss, obviously.

Step 3: Time to start building. There are 1001 ways to do this. Attach the pieces with glue (E-6000 is good stuff), staples, pins, screws, tape...whatever. Get creative!

Step 4: Take a photo or two and let’s see what you made. Add the #MakerCamp   hashtag so we’ll see them.

Step 5: If you get attached to your new robot friend, keep him/her around, because tomorrow we’ll learn how to bring them to life.

If you need a burst of creativity, check out my video of robot creations as inspiration for your own project.

I’ll be on a Hangout today at noon PST. Tune in and I’ll share some of my creations and answer your questions.
