6 Foot Instructables Robot Speaker #ArtTuesday

NewImage

Yueshi built this incredible 6 foot intractable robot speaker and moving sculpture. via instructables

This 2m tall Instructable robot is a powered speaker sculpture with movable parts. I was very fortunate to be commissioned to create this sculpture for Pier 9 workshop. During my residency, I learned to operate laser cutter, industrial 3d printer, manual lathe, woodshop machineries, etc. I applied most of the technology to this sculpture….

I started looking for reference of the robot logo, it turns out there is no image of this robot from a different angle, therefore I have to come up with the side view. I also added some details, the body is more dynamic and feet are converted to tracks looking shape. I designed the model in 3ds max, the two eyes on the robot are tweeters, the 3 holes in the middle are mid-range speakers, the port at as speaker enclosure vent. the subwoofer is hidden above the legs. The plan is to construct the robot body shell with lightweight polymer material and the speaker core with MDF and wood structure. to make the speaker reproducing accurate sounds, I also eliminate many movable parts and avoiding using screws that can be seen from outside. the only movable parts are the 3d printed hands. The next step is break down the 3d model into 2d patterns.
