Let's Roll: Audibot Transformer-style Robot

When I discovered an old child's battery car, a mini-me of my car, it gave me an idea! I created this Audibot - a kid's ride-on toy that turns into a cool robot! Check out my video below to see my Audibot in action! Children quickly outgrow or tire of toys; they then end up on auction sites or in skips. Maintaining my philosophy of recycling and repurposing I set about creating this assemblage of predominantly junk!

How this Audibot came into existence: my upcycling mentality!

There is great satisfaction in creating your very own unique piece! It becomes far more treasured than something you purchased from a shop. I learned this from a very young age. I spent my time enthusiastically disassembling broken things and salvaging the parts for some project! At that point, necessity was the mother of invention, and I was an inventaholic! This philosophy has served me well as an adult, and I continue to repurpose as much as possible.

Don't let those old, outgrown kid's toys go to waste! Turn them into your own Audibot as I did!

I made this Audibot out of all kinds of salvaged items, including old car parts, an upcycled pressure washer, toys, and scrap metal!  The bottom half of the robot needed weight, so this has most of the metal. I used more plastics and lightweight upcycled materials in the upper body to keep it mobile. I found an old Hotwheels toy slime robot, which I utilized for the head and adapted the robot voice by adding a larger speaker. It is motorized by a windscreen wiper motor for the torso and a Nerf gun motor for the mouth. They operate on an adjustable time switch. I completed this project in about four weeks, and the Audibot stands at around 5 1/2 feet tall!
