Trossen Robotics has announced the winners of their latest Trossen Robotics Community building contest. This scratch-built Wall-E, by TRC member 4mem8, won first prize (a SG-5UT Robotic Arm). Trossen writes:
We got to watch 4mem8 bring this guy to life and document every painstaking step that he took building this Wall-E robot from scratch. That’s right, this was not a kit, in fact he had the majority of it done far before the movie actually hit theaters and the toy stores were flooded with Wall-E merchandise. The robot itself is carved and crafted largely out of wood, and the rest from random parts found here and there… like a true ‘junk-bot ‘ should be! 4mem8 has made a great contribution with his knowledge and experience in building bots, so we’re very proud to present him with the first place prize in this round of the TRC contest. Great job 4mem8, you earned it!
