Robot Hobbyist Brings Wall-E to Life

What’s possibly more endearing than the robotic hero of Disney and Pixar’s 2008 Wall-E?  How about a life-sized version, created with two years’ worth of dedication by a true fan of the film and of robots in general?

Mike Senna started building his Wall-E in 2010, using screenshots and posters from the film to perfect the look and movements.  And based on the video of a nearly-complete Wall-E, he was pretty successful in recreating the robot’s motion and mannerisms.

The life-size Wall-E, which Senna spent 25 hours a week on (in addition to a full-time job), wasn’t just for his personal benefit – he took his robot to a yearly Hope Cancer Survivors Picnic to entertain the children – an event he took his working R2-D2 robot to in previous years.
