Creative Workshop Challenge 1—Robot Army Mail Order Kit 

One of two published entries in David Sherwin’s “Creative Workshop: 80 challenges to sharpen your design skills”, a HOW Design Press publication which offers design challenges to designers in order to help hone their skills. David asked different designers to perform his challenges and then published their results in his book as examples.

Challenge: "Draw up easy-to-follow plans to construct a robot of your own design out of various household materials: paper, pipe cleaners, buttons, cardboard tubes, etc. Then, give the plans and materials to a friend, then watch and take notes as she builds what you’ve designed. The robot must be able to be built in ten minutes or less."
