This is my robot AEGIS.
He is made from scrap parts found in a local junkyard and old metal offcuts from my workshop.
The chassis is made from 2"x2" box section mild steel.
The upper frame made from 1"x1" box section mild steel.
The Torso is made from a drain inspection chamber that i got from a local builders merchant.
It was damaged so couldnot be used for drainage .
The torso twist motor is from the junkyard , Its a window motor from some 1980s car.
The air tank for the pneumatic system came from a old truck , It was the air tank for the brake system.
IF YA WONT TO GET A HAT , GET A HEAD.
I made a tempary head out of cardboard , To get the look right.
MR TUFF NUT.
I then used the carboard head as a template to make a metal replacment.
The brains have flashing LEDs to add that cyborg look.
Im waiting for the motor controller (sabertooth) to arrive . Let the ROBOLUTION begin.
More posted as i make progress.

Will Aegis be featured on "Real Steel 2"?
my first one was a cardboard robot when i has about age 6
my first real robot was a popular science design i think back in the 70's
used large motors on alarm box and on top was a heater metal covering and on the top was a metal ss dome with very old camera CRT TUBE TYPE,board i ordered from company that had the design in popular magazine ,there was a lot and a lot of chips,cpu was motorolla 6800 maybe 5 mhz speed and it worked greati have a very old photo of it poloroid ,but DJ said cant post any design unless its EZB
i think i have over 70 robots,some working on fully restore,some EZB may be 30,and some i built using my favorate AI software ,that DJ said i cant post about it
Not my first but the biggest iv tryed .
my first robot was a turtle bot powered by a sincler (timex) spectrun.
in mid 80's worked ok but very limited.
mostly like trying all types of robot designs to compare them ,like turtlebot using ros,i made and icreate project using propellor board ,oap project,AND SEEKER robot made by dave shinsel and next it the LOKI MADE BY HIMthese are large scale robots and palm robot (small scale)
now working on small scale robots about 30 using ezb ,EVEN THE OMNIBOT is a small scale design
my work pays me almost what ever i want thats fair per project mostly $5k
so i have much time off and work on robots,looking to get over $100k for a special ultra high precision AC DC V/A source thats my design and they didnt ask me to build it
but robots building and collecting i love more
