An original very low tech robot

 This was my first attempt at any kind of robot.  I created it originally to give me something to do while I was healing from being disabled back in 1989. 

  It was built from popsicle sticks, sish kabob sticks, cotton string, bits of misc cloth, a few pieces of clothes hanger and a lot of elmers glue.   Everything was operated by various pully type systems driven by motor parts from broken battery operated drills I had previously scavenged or had been given to me.  The arm could actually lift about 5 lbs and move along the floor.

   All the electronics and real hardware have long been removed for other projects but I thought I would put it up here just to show what you can do when you get really bored!
