The tin can robot

My anthropomorphized tin can

Ever thought of anthropomorphizing a tin can? Me neither. However, I received a really cool birthday present from a colleague and his girlfriend three weeks ago – thanks to David and Mandy again :-). A Tin Can Robot Kit from Green Science. As X-tremeGeek.com refers “with the Tin Can Robot Kit, mad scientists can add motors, gears, legs and batteries to re-build a simple soda can. Throw the switch, and… it’s alive!” Hard to believe, but I managed to build my robot almost on my own. I guess, now it is time to evaluate its social acceptability and perceived animacy…
