It has been almost a year now since the Disney movie WALL-E was released, Hacked Gadgets featured some mods that were made but there has been a huge WALL-E following and countless hours spent making case mods, reproduction robots and other hacks. Thanks to the huge WALL-E mod community for the interesting creations, if you only have time to look at one hack scroll down to the bottom and look at #1 you will be amazed! I couldn’t find any build details on the above video, I think that it was created for Disney to promote the movie but if you have some additional information I would love to hear about it.

 

 


10. WALL-E Laptop

 

This video shows the amazing process of turning a normal looking laptop into a WALL-E Laptop. The airbrushing technique is wonderful.

9. LEGO WALL-E

 

From far this WALL-E build looks like the toy you can get from the store, it isn’t until you look closely that you can see it is all LEGO!

"A few months ago, I decided to build Wall-E, from the Disney movie that is just around the corner. Meant for a display in July, I finally was able to focus on the model and build it within three weeks – with lots of down time. Wall-E uses 2 Power functions IR controllers, so he can move and move his neck up and down. Also, his arms are on ball joints, so while not motorized, they can be posed. A mount is on the side for the arms to rest, but can be replaced with grill plates to be more accurate."

8. WALL-E made from Wood

 

This WALL-E made from Wood looks great, there is some controversy behind it though, apparently the creator does not want it shown. Not sure why since the detail is great.

7. WALL-E VEX Robot

 

This build was made using the VEX Robotic System. It looks like lots of fun.

"This mini Wall-E model robot was made from the VEX robotics System, and covered in card-stock panels I made from hi-def screen shots from the movie."

 


6. WALL-E Mini Computer

 

This WALL-E Mini Computer has lots of cool features, the front panel flips down to reveal the tiny computer monitor, you can also control the system by voice commands using the blue tooth head set.

5. Stock WALL-E Robot Hack

 

When a store bought WALL-E robot didn’t cut it why not take it apart and rebuild it? That is exactly what we are looking at here!

Link

"I started off with the toy titled "Interactive Wall-E". Available at toys’r’us current price $34.99 I am a robot hobbiest and have a lot of expierence with the programming and design to give robots expression and life. The first bit advice I can lend is to be confident. Second advice is to be creative. Together, you’re mind will figure out the rest for you :) There are plenty of peices available to you. My workshop is nothing special. I keep a supply of parts that are low cost. I usually collect items from disassembling other toys :) . Sadly, servos are the most expensive parts of the bunch. For fasteners I use Zip Ties and an arragement of small screws, bolts and nuts. All are available in cheap combo kits at your local hardware store. To modify the casings, i use a speed adjustable dremel and sometimes my soldering iron to melt plastic. For dremeling, please keep a vacumn nearby. *Warning: For melting, keep a window open with a fan!!"

 

 


4. WALL-E Made from stack of CD-ROM Drives

 

This build gets major points for creative construction materials. If you can believe it the body is constructed from 3 CD-ROM drives!

3. WALL-E Builders Club Creations

 

The WALL-E Builders Club has a number of builders who enjoy creating models. The WALL-E models are first rate!

2. WALL-E Wood Model Robot

 

What makes this build real impressive is it was built after just watching some video clips and seeing some pictures of WALL-E.

Link

"Also, a set of sensors would make this project autonomous. GWJax will be doing the PBasic programming for the Wall-E. The criteria are as follows:

  1. Use my Mattracks as the main drive unit
  2. Motor drive gear motors using H bridge controllers
  3. Pan/tilt head using Parallax ultra sonic ping
  4. 3 GP2D12 IR edge detectors or similar detectors
  5. raise and lower the arms as a pair [up and down only]
  6. raise and lower the front door
  7. [Maybe not sure yet] raise and lower the head
  8. Use Parallax ping in both eyes
  9. airbrush Wall-E to look authentic as possible.
  10. Fit a uOLED in the front panel
  11. Use a Parallax emic text to speech chip for wall-e’s voice
  12. Fit Ultra bright blue LEDs in Wall-E’s eyes
  13. Make a pair of H bridges for the drive motors"

 


1. WALL-E Case Metal Mod

 

 

This WALL-E Case Metal Mod is a very impressive build. Have a look at the detail! No corners were cut in this project. The fact that it holds a case is almost beside the fact when you see how much time and effort went into making the actual WALL-E robot. It was apparently built in 18 days but that seems hard to believe!

    Those look cool, I’ve so gotta build an RC ‘something’ with tank tracks one day, but not a tank.

    BTW, Flickr’s flash slideshow is screwing with my pointer, it keeps vanishing until I move it, wether I play the slideshow or not.

  3. WALL-E Makes Hobby Robotics Look Cool Says:

    […] The WALL-E Builders Community should be commended for its innovative and insightful approach to not only setting out to develop a life-like replica of the movie robot, WALL-E, but also for organizing a passionate and committed open-domain community that helped accomplish this goal. As reported in my last blog post, the future of building advanced, complex robotics systems will depend on the leveraging of organizational, social, and intellectual forms of capital that can only be derived from an open source development methodology embraced by experts and enthusiasts alike.
