Building A Famous Hollywood Robot

NYC CNC | 40 videos | Updated 1 month ago

Building the Johnny 5 robot from the 1986 classic movie, Short Circuit, has been one heck of a journey. There are over 2000 parts that will eventually be assembled into one big (over 7 feet tall and 400 lbs) robot. Luckily, many amazing machinists have worked their butts off to help us bring Johnny 5 to life! We're still receiving parts from collaborators and machining MORE parts on top of that. We've still got a lot of work to do but we're never gonna give him up!
