Genius, that’s the only word to describe this.
I’m not quite sure what the practical applications are for a robot that staggers around like half a drunken redneck on a shopping spree, but the moment I saw this bad boy catch fire and still keep on trucking, I knew I’d seen my favourite piece of tech of the week. Take a look. This clip was made for giggling.
Carlos’s inventor wanted to design a lower profile bot for a more real and accessible strata of society and if you want to know how it’s done, the raw materials are quite simple:
- 2 car batteries
- 1 x 12 volt electric motor
- many bicycle chains
- 1 RC controller and servo
- 1 metal hanger
- 1 shopping cart
- 1 silly inventor.
