Here’s another awesome project by Vadim Ryazanov of Let’s Make Robots. Called Mr. Wake, this robot has the duty of protecting its alarm clock from any bleary-eyed, would-be assailants. Instead of running away after its snooze button has been pressed, like the Clocky, this ‘bot engages a homebrew IR sensor as soon as the alarm goes off, and takes off if it detects anything even trying to get near the button.

I love the choice of building materials, especially the frame made of heat-formed plastic pens. Nice work!
