  1. The creator of this robot(and video) is my father. While he was making Bickford, we thought my dad did have too much time on his hands . As far as razors, he actually got packages for them for Christmas. He had a ton of fun creating the robot, and actually made a smaller version first. He liked how the smaller one looked better, but had to make Bickford2 so he had more room for the servos and wiring. He is a perfectionist, which is why his videos are so well done. A professional artist who I can call the most talented artist I’ve know without bias. We picked on him relentlessly for this robot, but had a lot of crow to eat when Ripleys Believe It Or Not purchased it for thousands of dollars. Soo much fun !
