NXT Mindstorms hacker BlueToothKiwi created a working Wall-E trash collector robot and uploaded build instructions to the NXTLog.

To mark the release of the film, the official web site has a ‘Build your own robot’ section where you get to choose the looks / behavior / mobility etc.

And of course, if you got a NXT – you dont need to go to a web site to design a virtual robot. You can of course build your own real Wall-e! Well almost!!

BlueToothKiwi’s bot may have won an NXTLog building challenge, but there are some other great Wall-e robots on the NXTLog site worth checking out. From the look-and-feel department, Joe Meno’s Flickr photos of his bot bear a striking resemblance to Earth’s last robot.

Last is this humble little Wall-E, based on the original Mindstorms.

I’m pretty sure I need to build about 10 of these things and scatter them around the office.
