2010 Fobot Sale

My apologies for not posting this sooner, but–ahem–THE 2010 FOBOT SALE HAS BEGUN!  Today at noon, actually, but you already knew that, didn’t you?  Yes, sales have been brisk today, but there are plenty of good ones still left.  Including this one.

People are always asking me at shows, “Do you ever have bots that you can’t stand to sell?”  I always say no, I have their pictures to keep me company.  And that my favorite quote is “Art isn’t art until it’s sold.  Until then, it’s an obsession and a storage problem.”  Until this guy came along.  “Acrobot” is his name, he stands 18 ” tall, and he’s made of an oil can, pool ball, sash lock, erector set girders, wrenches, pulleys, buttonhole attachments, candy mold, and I have no idea what that hat thing is.  You do NOT want to know how expensive he is.  Let’s just say that first you have to make a unicycle, and then you make a Fobot exactly the right size to ride it, and that takes a while.  If you want to see him and the other bots participating in the annual sale, go to www.ifobot.com and look in the “Gallery of Available Fobots”.  Don’t buy this one, though.  I love him. Obsession, storage problem…OK, maybe.
