After watching a recent video by The Crafsman we were inspired by the video about action figures where Crafsman talks of 80’s action figures with 5 point articulation (this is where the head, legs and arms can all move). This got us on to thinking about how we could achieve this using the laser cutter.

After a few attempts we came up with ‘The LaserBot’ a really simple action figure that can be used in sessions as a stimulus for learning. We’re looking at ways that visitors can repurpose, remix and redesign the LaserBot. Watch this space for some activities with the ‘LaserBot’
