Chris the Carpenter, long-time member of Let’s Make Robots and founder of Rocket Brand Studios presents what I describe as a masterpiece of machining. Chris not only designed and built Walter II, he designed and built all the tools he used to make him. For a self-named carpenter, Chris has some pretty amazing metal working skills.

The original Walter that Chris refers to in the video is a robot he built, improved upon and re-built over the course of several years. Walter has been dormant for some time, while Chris has been busy acquiring the skills and tools he has needed to launch his own small robotics business.

The original Walter is pretty cool too.

A good idea never dies though, and so Walter II was born! You can come and see Walter II at the Let’s Make Robots table at World Maker Faire in New York.
