Alpha Rama & Jaggernaut Robot by John Rigg
During late 2015 through to 2016 master robot builder John Rigg, who resides in the USA designed and built these two robots which were mostly only available to members of Alphadrome, a website and forum for robot and space toy collectors. Both are programmable when connected to a computer. The Alpha-Rama robot on left which has been made by a 3D printer is based loosely on Bender from "Futurama" the TV series, the Jaggernaut on right is made of tinplate with 3D printed legs & feet, is based loosely on Robby the Mechanized Robot which featured the 1956 film "Forbidden Planet". Both are powered by 4x AA batteries and can walk, performing amazing actions with their legs and arms, talk, also light up eyes and mouth. in addition Alpha-Rama raises the beer bottle to its mouth to take a drink. You can see a video of Jaggernaut on the right by clicking the YouTube link at the top of website.
