If you love robots, you’ll want to meet Christopher Robinson. Chris designs and fabricates robots and robotics kits for his Cape-based company, Rocket Brand Studios. These kits are used by schools, maker groups, and other organizations to teach children and adults how to build and program robots.
Not only does Chris build robots, he has also built many of his own tools, including a 3D printer, CNC machine, and power hacksaw—from scratch. (Wow!) Here is a video showing the Walter II robot, along with the tools that he used to make him.
In his spare time, Chris is a very active member of Let’s Make Robots, the biggest robot hobbyist website in the world. He also teaches robot-making workshops and has created a huge library of tutorials and other videos on his YouTube channel. We are so impressed by his dedication to help the world learn to build and program robots.
Chris has a great sense of humor. One of his creations is an automatic fortune cookie machine. You wave your hand over the top of it and an embedded printer prints out a fortune for you. We predict that Chris and his robots will be a big hit at the Cape Cod Maker Faire. Can’t wait!
