Retired cop makes awesome robot from appliances

Molly Wood May 14, 2013

Mark Haygood’s humanoid robot HEX was pointed out by Damn Geeky. But Gizmodo gets points for noticing the resemblance to Johnny Five. The robot’s hands at least are a dead ringer for those on the best robot from the 1980s. But even if you don’t see the similiarities, you have to be impressed by a guy who spent that much time putting together a robot from basic home electronics. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the film, but this clip holds up pretty well. No dissassemble! No dissassemble!
