Fobots are Go!

My good buddy Cianna sent me a link to this little treasure that turns out to be in my own back yard. Amy Flynn's Fobots (Found Object Robots) are amazing! I may have to trek down to Raleigh to pick one of these up one day. This from the site:

"Fobots are the work of Raleigh, North Carolina artist Amy Flynn. After over 25 years as a professional illustrator (you can visit her design portfolio at, Amy started making robots to fill the time between illustration jobs. Now, it's her passion, as it combines two of her favorite pastimes; making things and shopping. She scours flea markets, basements, internet auctions, and scrapyards for cool old junk. Amy then solders and bolts the pieces together to create sturdy, one-of-a-kind sculptures, never to be duplicated."


  1. That is simply awesome -- wow. Reminds me of some of the characters from the Robots animated film from a few years back.

    Anyway, I'm impressed.

  2. Dave, agreed. Makes you want to make some robots, don't it?
