crazy for ROBOTS: robot #47



Allen

I absolutely LOVE the robots of David Lipson, aka Lipson Robotics! I first saw these wonderful 'bots when perusing through one of the robot pools that I belong to on flickr. David's robots immediately stood out. Beautifully designed, they have a presence that is undeniably cool. Needless to say, I had a really hard time picking out which two from his robot set to post, but these are two of my (many!) faves.

I really love the attention to detail on David's robots.KF Red is constructed out of some great pieces including sauce cups, sprockets, c-clamps, lamp parts, a gas line hose, and much more. I really like the attention to color in this. The spice-canister head and bright yellow arms really help to highlight the detail found in the wonderful piece that makes up his chest. Very cool! Be sure to check out all of the great bots in David's flickr set.

Gosh, these really are wonderful!

Are you familiar with the work of Mike Rivamonte? He also does incredible robot sculptures from found bits...
