Wall-E Robot

The Star Robot Build for MRO17

From last year we started building star robots for the MRO event, last year it was the full scale fully functional BB-8 Droid from the Star Wars franchise.

This year we're going with a Disney Pixar lovable robot, Wall-E. This is the build log of the robot build.

The droid is being built with the help of the Artificial Intellgence Department at the University of Malta, the Design & Technology team at MEDE and finally the Computing and ICT team at MEDE.
