I guess you never grow out of playing with cardboard boxes. This man sized WALL-E robot just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on material just to make a shell for your robots.
The WALL-E robot includes a custom 433Mhz transmitter and receiver which uses Holtek HT12E and HT12D encoder and decoders. Atmega8 and Atmega16 were used to format the data being transmitter. The robot comes to life with the help of motors and pneumatic cylinders.
The soda bottles sure looks hackerish if you ask me. I would like to see more details on the pneumatics used in this project. See more build photos after the break.
