Will Langford, the Tufts student who created printable shop glasses on his MakerBot and rendered Thom Yorke’s head in 3D, has now printed a Sumbot chassis for an Arduino-driven sumo. Nice work, Will!

It’s so cute!

    Just want to clarify that I wasn’t the one who first printed Thom Yorke’s head on a Makerbot (though I did print one out this weekend); that honor goes to Tiago Serra.

    Thanks for the mention!
