This is R.O.G.E.R - Recycled Object Gathering Electronic Robot. This is an early pic of work in progress. He is a commissioned piece for a Science Discovery Centre. The brief was "Create a classic 70's looking robot made obviously from recycled objects to intrigue children". He will stand 1.5 meters tall once I fit his legs. He has many features which will all be revealed when he is completed. I should have him finished next week, so will update pics and description then...
