Pixar’s Wall-E Brought to Life by California Farmer

3 Sep

…there’s a new robot in town whose geek appeal is only matched by his adorably over-sized eyes.

All of Wall-E’s features are remote controlled, from his 270 degree vision and super-expressive eyebrows to his warbly robot voice and accompanying romantic soundtrack.

This adventurous little robot does like to get out of the house. McMaster has brought his Wall-E to the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco as well as that city’s annual Maker Faire.

And fellow Wall-E builder Mike Senna uses his replica of Wall-E to entertain kids all over his home state of California. Most recently, Senna’s Wall-E made an appearance at the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s summer camp in Orange, Calif., and he also makes frequent visits to Orange County’s Children Hospital.

McMaster and Senna recently told the Washington Post that the smiles they see on kids’ faces when Wall-E rolls into the room is reason enough to keep building and improving these lovable bots.
