 The making of Makey (Make: Projects)

 The making of Makey (Make: Projects)

Makey the Robot has become something of a MAKE mascot. We really like the little fella, with his Hollywood good looks. Makey was a featured project in MAKE Volume 19, our robot issue, and now, our favorite in-house metal head can also be found on Make: Projects, with the complete details of the build. The project is not an easy one, but in the process, you’ll learn basic metalworking skills as well as the electronics and programming.

My Robot, Makey
