Space Boy Robots – Steam machines for the living room

A stunning gallery on Flickr led us to this gentleman making incredible ‘one of a kind’ robots. Great stuff. We’re seriously thinking about getting one of those mechanical wonders for ikono labs. A coffee robot that refills itself would be great to have.

JORDAN-ALEXANDER THOMAS about his work:
“I’ve been making robots for the last couple of years and it started when my love of indie handmade and my love of robots collided. I began building little robots out of wooden blocks and found/recycled items that I was lucky enough to scrounge up. Today, I still follow the same process. I personally hand build, and hand paint each robot. Each robot is a guaranteed ‘one of a kind’. About a year ago I began centering my work on steam power pseudo-Victorian era styled robots and have been working on a collection of historical ray guns from the future. I’m also working on a series of time machine oddities; although, they don’t actually travel through time…yet. ”
