That's pretty sweet. Speaking of Steampunk, here's something I found on Brass Goggles (http://www.brassgoggles.co.uk/brassgoggles/):

It's Marvin, the Babbage Concierge! He's got brass on the outside and Phidgets on the inside. When the project matures a little further, I'll give him the TR Blog treatment.

I love the steampunk stuff.

Steamboy is an anime that features the idea. That spider and face are amazing. Crabfu's steam powered bots are very steampunk.

Check these insects out:

These artbots are amazing also:

On a completely unrelated note... We don't have many decorations in our office, and we really like robot art.

GREAT idea Dave:) We need to get some frames and put these up!

Here is another great mechanoid/robot-ish artist. I met him this summer at a local art fair and I've also seen his Bull at a very high end car dealership in Chicago.

This is exactly the direction I'd like to be a part of moving robotics in.

That is the next step right?

Make the art move...

Frames? I want the actual sculptures!

I renamed the thread to Robot Art since it's kinda turned into the de facto robot art thread :)

Check out Guy Robot (http://www.guyrobot.com/home.html)'s creations

Yeah there are lots of amazingly inspirational artists out there with interest in robots. Combining art and mechines, it just doesn't get any better than that!

Hey this is a really inspirational thread- now maybe I know why I've been keeping boxloads of bit and pieces around for years! I really like the first one in the thread, the shiny arachnid... but they're all cool. Have your Trossen offices acquired any installations yet? Maybe you have an alcove of known size begging for a creation?

We've been wanting to pick a couple up for quite some time now, but I don't think it'll happen till we move into a larger place:(

This is the first in a series of five short films that I have been working on for the past five years. My wife thinks the robots move too slowly, and the content isn't the best. I think...I don't know what I think. I know I sent these movies to several film festivals...well...they weren't accepted. so oh well.

I'll try to post the rest of the movies over the next few weeks. These movies are how I really got into robotics. Teaching robotics...that wan't real. These movies...

well...enjoy.

Ok...I don't mean to dominate this thread, there are four movies total, and this is the second. If you guys feel like they belong in a different thread then please feel free to move these.

Here is the second movie. Its called girlstory. It has the same robots, but their roles are different.

All of the robots used in these movies are ER-1s or Lego Mindstorms robots. They live in my shed now. I suppose at some point I'll have to strip them down and pass them on to someone who will use them.

CRAP DB! I must've not clicked "post" the other day when my browser crashed. I had a post all ready for ya in response to your first two vids.

I really dug your first two videos (haven't watched the second two yet). I'm surprised they weren't accepted at the film festivals. Maybe robotics just aren't mainstream enough yet. I know film festivals are all about non-mainstream stuff, but there still has to be some genuine mainstream interest, otherwise, they wouldn't be so popular right?

Anyways, (I'm horrible at expressing my thoughts/feelings, just ask my finance) you did a great job at creating personalities with your "actors". At times, I caught myself believing that I was watching something organic. The way that the camera followed droko (is that the name?) while rolling down the sidewalk put so much realism into the movie, making it appear that he was deep in thought about decisions that he was making.

Thanks for the kind words alex. I still haven't filmed the fifth movie. It involves real people...much harder to work with.

Ok...So I'm sorry if it seams like i've been dominating this thread.

Charlie (http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/showthread.php?t=2481), Gepetto, Vivian (http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/showthread.php?t=1439), Perhaps Bluebot, big mac (though I haven't quite worked that one out yet) and I will be performing experimental music and Video at the Rockhopper's Daily Grind (http://rockhoppersdailygrind.blogspot.com/) here on Whidbey Island. The performance is this saturday at 8:00 PM and will be webcast through the Rockhopper website.

Anyone who lives in the area is welcome to come, and there will be an after party in my guest house for those who don't want to take a late ferry back to the mainland.
