2009 John Rigg Alphabot Robot now with real beacon
This was made by master robot builder John Rigg for Alphadrome members during 2009 before John got into 3D plastic printing. When I received mine I thought it would look more complete if it had a flashing beacon on the top of its head. SO almost 9 years later after thinking about it during that time decided I should do something about it, here we are in 2018, a suitable donor beacon came from a Space Walk Man robot, a bulb holder from a battery op toy dog, new 3.5 volt screw in bulb and after some drilling, grinding and soldering managed to get this working beacon going. Thank you to John for making it in the first place and advice where to connect the wires.
