Inventors Have Created Real Life WALL-E

Subscribe to TheFW on

It took five years, but it was totally worth it. A team of robot builders decided to create a real life WALL-E, scaling the robot to recognizable items in the movie (like VHS tapes and a Rubik’s cube).

The robot is a 1:1 scale, made 100% from scratch. It took a couple of attempts to make the head, which is made of foam board and moves via servos. Prop builders gave advice on how to make WALL-E look rusted.

Because the robot has treads rather than wheels, it operates best on smooth surfaces. The robot is remote controlled, so you could pretend you’re sending WALL-E through a post-apocalyptic wasteland instead of the Target parking lot.
