I, Robot

My daughter had a project where she was supposed to make a robot out of recyclable materials. Here is the result:

So shoot me, I helped her build the thing, but it was all her design. She told me what went where. My only original contribution to its design is the use of tennis balls for the shoulder joint. I manned the hot-glue run and she held things in place. The robot's name is Ellie. She is a dress-making robot. According to her designer, she can put out 14 dresses a day. She has a robot dog as a pet, but we didn't have time to build that. Maybe a future project?


  1. Can I hire this robot to make some dresses for me? This thing rocks!!

  2. If we can mass produce them, we'd be millionaires!
