Fun to make stuff
Robotics is an integration of different technologies. My first robot was built in 1998. It was for my second year project in UBC – fire fighting robot. Then, I started building robots for fighting (Botbash.com, Arizona), maze robot (Seattle Robotics), automation, bipedal robots (Japan)… My full-time job is R&D for different companies. From Laser Ethernet, wireless stuff, smart antenna, FPGA, parallel processing, imaging processing to Big LED screen and smog detection system. Now, I’m into 3D drawing and make it into real objects. Here is my website, www.andykong.com. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if you are into robots, 3D or paper crafts. I may be crazy but my dream is to build a really big robot. Anyway, some time, crazy people are the ones who actually change the world. haha
If you like to make a Gundam Robot Head, please follow these 4 steps.
1. Download this pdo file. http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/gallery/gallerydetails.php?id=1281
2. Download and install Pepakura software (Free). http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/download/viewer.html
3. Print it in your printer (I use A3 printer, I guess you can print it in A4 and stick them together.)
4. Cut the pieces out and use the Pepakura software as a guide of how to glue the pieces together.
You can use any paper, I prefer 250 gram paper. You can make it in a day.
If you encounter any problem, please email me with clear description and pictures. And if you make the mask, please take a picture and email me at email@example.com, Cheers.
