Meet my robot assistant Pistachio-3 the pretend robot made out of real wood. Pistachio is my first robot design, and the first robot-art manufactured here at Pickledog Robotics and Rubber Bands. Cut from high quality robotic-grade softwood, and painted in a bright red and turquoise acrylic with black ink. Pistachio features removable arms and legs, and a removable backpack. The backpack holds Pistachio’s battery, and communications equipment. Early failures with the P-1 and P-2 models lead to the improvement of having the battery pack easily removable incase of emergency.
Pistachio not only assists Pickledog and myself around the studio, but he also helps out with the website whenever there’s a problem. The wooden future is here beware! More robot models coming soon.
