MAKE Volume 27 Robot Contest

Does your bot have tons of character? Does it make you laugh uncontrollably or pat it on the back for being so clever? Then certainly your bot deserves the chance to appear on the pages of MAKE Volume 27, the upcoming Robot issue. We’re running a fun contest in search of the most entertaining robot you’ve made.

The rules are simple:

1. Come up with an entertaining, original robot with tons of character.
2. Document your build step-by-step with clear instructions, photos, and a video of the robot in action, then share it on Make: Projects.
3. Send an email to with a link to your Make: Projects entry when you’re done. Easy!

Check out the original post for more details.

Don’t have your build steps documented? The in-action video is the most important part, so give it a go and post your video up on Make: Projects for your chance to win.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
