Wall-E is a beloved movie robot, but he’s not an easy dude to bring to life. There have been several Wall-E replicas, though this one seems to be the best one so far. Mike McMaster and his team spent five years checking out every detail they could find on Wall-E, and building the Pixar movie robot.
EVE looks pretty badass in these renderings, which would be the desired effect. Wall-E on the other hand has lost all cuteness and picks up something of a doofus look. That’s what makes him the scariest hitman. Rendered by SgtHK.
Wall-E is probably the most adorable robot to have ever touched the big screen. California robotics enthusiast and Wall-E fan Mike Senna has now created a real life version of the adorable robot. It isn’t quite Wall-E in terms of the character’s acts and intrigues, but it can move around, and have actions to match what we saw in the movie.
Robot enthusiast DJ Sures brought out the adorable Wall-e from imagination (and the movie) into reality. Well the bot Sures built isn’t as intelligent as the real Wall-e we saw in the movie, but it is pretty close when it comes to movement. Powered by AAA batteries, the bot uses a camera in its eye for motion, color and face detection. Sures started off with a plastic toy called The U-Command Wall-E, then put in servo motors, tracks and the software that makes the bot be a bit close to the real Wall-e.
This Wall-E doesn’t do any robot collection, but it does have a mini PC inside, and an RC unit that allows you to control the PC and move it around. An arduino and a few servo motors control the system, and help the cute robot-PC to move around.
Wall-E made with Lego NXT is a league apart from the usual crop of Lego Wall-Es we have seen earlier. The autonomous/ remote-controlled Wall-E has Lego Mindstorms in its guts and can transform into a box, like the real Wall-E we saw in the movie. A couple of videos of Wall-E in action after the jump.
