I saw a cube robot like this in a department store in London for £300- . My fiancee wanted one so I decided to make her one for her birthday last month.

The challenging part was designing it such that the cuts and cube sizes allowed it to fold neatly into a cube. Got a little confusing at times!

I also made a quick, simple hand cut dovetail storage box to suit.

Cheers, Dom

A little confusing? That looks like one complicated build. That is awesome! The box is beautiful too. Nicely done.

Nice to see a toy that doesn’t require batteries, just an imagination!
Unique project, well done!

Very interesting build. It looks great (and complicated). I love the box too.

Wow! Thanks for sharing!
Is there a plan for the robot cube some where? Would love to see the robot cube build documented, as my son would enjoy having one.

Thanks guys! It was a bit of fun.

Unfortunately, whilst I had some initial sketches the design evolved during the build and I didn’t update the drawing.

Cheers, Dom

Excellent work!

Would you care to give a few hints as to the hinging of the extremities?
