Zombie Robots!

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

You heard it here first! Rodger Cleye from our forums just posted his newest invention, Donna the Dead Bot. He built this using a motorized wheelchair base rigged with an R/C system, and adding some PVC pipe, a strobe light, and a glowing eye skull and some ghost-like apparel. Not only is this an awesome invention for scaring the candy out of kids trick-or-treating, it’s a solid example of ZombieTechâ„¢, which is the fusing of zombies and robots… which just so happens to be our only chance of survival if the Skynet and Zombie armageddons happen to occur simultaneously. Scaring kids and saving future lives, go Rodger!
