Dot Robot Punk

A commission for Jason Bradbury. 'Punk' is one of the robots from Jason's new book 'Dot Robot'. The model was built in around six weeks and required over fifty bespoke hand-cast resin parts.

The body uses a pair of prefabricated shatterproof plastic hemispheres. I made custom router jigs to cut the panel lines into the surface of the sphere. The 'eye' panels were treated with transparent black acrylic and back-lit with arrays of LEDs. The inner spikes are interchangeable, allowing different lengths to be attached using magnets.

The base is wood and uses perspex rods to support the robot, which contains an inner wooden frame.

Jason has posted a video of his first meeting with the finished robot on his site.
