In which I demonstrate how I made a cardboard robot using tools and materials from Adam Savage's Maker Box along with a bit of humor to keep it interesting. While I show making a specific robot figure, this video should be used as a source of inspiration. There are a million plus ways to make a robot. Have fun with it!
