Robot Repair Sub

This is a six-armed underwater repair robot of my own design, assembled from various styrene plastic bits. Some parts i made for the project, but most are from my extensive collection of plastic stuff. The forward part of the rear section, for instance, was originally a container for cole slaw.... Several layers of grey and silver paints, simulated rust damage, dents and scratches, etc. Mounted with stainless steel rods on a commercial wood base. About 16 inches long.

Like a "SteamPunk" version of something you'd see from the "Ghost In The Shell" anime series.

almost alive.. a bug-like creation by the creative mind and hand of mr. simpson
This oddly functional-looking little 'bot could've come right out of a Jules Verne novel. Perhaps it does maintenance and repair on the Nautilus. Lovely, imaginative creation. :)

awesome! The appearance is very real.
DonSimpson's avatar
Thank you. :) I put a huge amount of work into it.

That's really well done! Looks functional in a weird way.
DonSimpson's avatar
Thank you. :) It is indeed intended to look functional, and most (but not all) parts of it have an assigned function.

That is so cool, I really love the arms, they are totally sweet.
DonSimpson's avatar
Thank you. :) Yeah, the hands have their own little camera eyes and stuff. One of my best pieces.

Where's the propulsion at?
DonSimpson's avatar
It has various vents for water jet intake and output. It doesn't go very fast, and it would be taken to a repair site by a larger craft.
subtronik's avatar
Well I must tell you, your work fascinates me.
DonSimpson's avatar
Hmmm. I hope that's in a good way. :)

No doubt, keep it up.
