The future just got a whole lot less bleak. The impending and unavoidable robot takeover may not be as damaging to humankind as we once feared. At least not if they keep making ‘em out of styrofoam. Hell, these Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots could annihilate each other and nobody would even notice except for a select few in the packaging industry.
Aside from the eventual robot uprising, we still have to construct them to get to that point, right? Well, Kevin Kelly and his son have been working on a robot made from five years’ worth of saved styrofoam. Armed with foam cutters and a silicon sealant, the pair cut and shaped, glued and assembled the pieces until their robot took form. Comprised of five main sections, the Styrobot disassembles easily for shipping to any place where styrofoam creatures happen to be in need of robot overlords.
