Robot Concept Art 4

Posted by Glen Moyes on Tuesday, 22 December, 2009 at 4:56 pm

I’ve been working on more robot designs. Not all of the robots will look the same. There will actually be a lot if diversity in the robot designs because each one has a special task to do.

And what they want to do with a water heater is beyond me. I don’t know, maybe they’ll use it to launch satellites into space.


There are two things that I thought about while doing the new robot design for this piece of concept art. One is that not all the robots will look as human-like as its distant relative. Most are quite specialized by design and may not even have legs. The other is experimenting with subtle cues that reference the animal character designs in the world.

I wanted these to be heavy lifting robots with legs and arms. The concept is that the creator wanted to stress test the walking design while still getting stuff done, so she gave them the job of moving equipment and junk. They don’t have batteries so they are powered by suspended cables. I liked the idea of having experimental robots and a ghetto power solution.
