Mike Senna, well known from the remote-control R2-D2 replica he built in 2003, is now building a working WALL-E replica from the Pixar film. Completely scratch built, as there are no hobbiest parts available.
Our WALL-E met a lot of great families at the Orange Public Library, after a screening of the film. It was an overflow crowd, so we started by showing WALL-E to the people waiting outside who didn't make it in. I did a show-and-tell slide show about the inner workings of my Wall-E and what it took to build it. We got some great questions from the audience, and one small artist gave me a drawing he had made of WALL-E. We love this stuff! Hopefully it inspired some future engineers or robot builders!
