Remember Wall-E? That scruffy but cute little bot who starred in his own movie five years ago? Well, now he’s made the ultimate of crossovers from the world of movies into real life. It didn’t involve magic or the involvement of studio giants, though. All it took to make it happen was one dedicated dude and his very good friend.
Mike McCaster and his buddy Mike Senna worked on their real-life Wall-E bot for years. It’s not just some R/C car that was taken apart and put together with a new frame either. They painstakingly crafted each piece for the robot from scratch.
Mike’s Wall-E has fully-functional treads and can rotate its head by 270 degrees. It can wiggle its eyebrows and also comes equipped with a “solar level charge” meter–just like Wall-E in the movies.
Next project for Mike and Mike? A real-life EVE bot.
