Wall-E robot powered by the magic of LEGO Mindstorms NXT

This robot may not be one that can help serve your granny her afternoon tea but from the gentleman who brought you Lego built Wall-E robot clone with realistic eye movements two years ago now comes his latest DIY release Wall-E 5. This time, the Canadian Marc-Andre Bazergui has not only managed eye movements but everything else from transforming between a trash can to arm movements.

see the video at end of this article to see it in action!
The new Wall-E took six months to complete and incorporates six NXT bricks, 17 motors and over a thousand parts that let the lovelorn bot so adorable.
Now putting together a bot with the Mindstorms NXT kit may not be new but its something that we’ll never get tired of see.
Create a fully automated transformable WALL-E* robot using LEGO® Mindstorms® NXT and LEGO® Technic® components. This very large show robot should go from being a cube to a well proportioned, fully articulated working WALL-E.
This project is possible thanks to help from team including but not limited to:

Maxime Santerre 17 yo Rimouski, QC TiMaxLego
