Check out the cool metal robotic sculptures of Chris Wollard.
Chris has been making all kinds of metal sculptures for over 10 years. Our favorite has to be his Robo Rocket Samurai.
Shown here is the sculpture called Dorkbot.
If you live near Tulsa OK be sure to go to his Build A Bot event on 7/17 at Dwelling Spaces from 5 – 9.

Now that the giant Gundam statue is done, folks in Japan found time to start building Tetsujin.
Earlier this year, a Tetsujin was also created for use in a stage play.
This time, the robot is being built in Wakamatsu Park in Kobe. The robot will be over 60 feet tall and weigh over 50 tons.
Tetsujin is originally from a 1956 Japanese manga. It was later adapted for American audiences and called Gigantor.
Our question to you is, who would win in a fight, Gundam or Tetsujin?
Video of the building progress after the break.
The sculpture called Space Observer will be more than two stories tall, have 3 legs and propellers for hands.
Visitors will be able to walk through Space Observer’s legs and watch live video displayed on monitors embedded in the sculpture.
Check out more robot related art, such as Drone #4 or Planet Space Observer, from Bjorn Schulke at his website here.
No word on when it wall be installed, just soon.
