RoboMustache have launched their flagship line of laser cut DIY kits through the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. RoboMustache DIY kits are made from durable bamboo board and offer five kits to create an articulated model kit that resemble original and unique robot-inspired designs. The Toy Chronicle can never say ‘No’ to a robot.
Five robot DIY kits are being made available in the campaign, three of them brand new for customers to purchase and all will be available in two color tones of bamboo. Each kit comes with full color detailed instructions to help build the robot, written from the perspective of the robot characters themselves. Every kit is custom cut by a precision laser cutter, offering a uniform product with fine details and a unique burned wood finish look.
RoboMustache is named for its first robotic lifeform, a forgotten experiment found in a derelict factory. It seeks the help of humans to send its robotic creations far and wide, expanding its delightfully cute, yet surprisingly firm pincer grasp around the world. There are many mysteries left to be discovered in the world of RoboMustache, and the journey has only just started.
The DIY kits encourage creativity and promote hands-on activities for young and old alike. Assemble it yourself or turn it into a bonding moment between a parent and child. Although not necessary, feel free to further decorate your robot with paints or stains after assembly. Now use your imagination to play with your new robot buddy or put it on display for all to see.
RoboMustache was created by founder Charles Wade, a 29 year old graphic designer with a love of creating and sharing innovative art and S.T.E.A.M. based interests. Inspired by a mix of cartoon doodles and the look of wooden crafts, he created the titular character RoboMustache as a base and then designed the first robot kit Helper Bot soon after. Since his start in 2012, Wade has taken his hobby and work to turn it into a full business with a line of products based around the RoboMustache brand
he has developed.
Wade has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help take his venture to the next level. Backers will be able to get a variety of products ranging from the robot assembly kits to necklaces, shirts and more. The campaign ends January 8, 2016. You can check out the Kickstarter HERE. There are a whole bunch of awesome rewards, which we’ve included below:
