Video of Road Case Restoration

How to repair your flight case super easy. Check out white Plasti Dip with Violet Metalizer top coat. Installation of open-cell and closed-cell foam, locking casters.

Over time, the protective foam within road cases begins to breakdown and decompose. This video will show you how to replace your foam, mask off your hardware for a fresh coat of paint, and create a caster plate to attach wheels to make moving heavy cases easier.

DIY Robot Stereo

NDP is so far the most involved and elaborate bot in the lineup. Standing at 4 foot 3 inches tall and 32 inches wide, Nonstop Disco Powerpack is like having another friend at the party!

Originally a toaster oven and a car speaker cabinet, this now fully functional CD and MP3 player featuring 5.1 surround rocks a room and illuminates it with subtle LED lighting.

DIY Robot Night Light

Willy is the first robot completed robot by Sean. Standing 16 inches tall, this functional nightlight gives a subtle glow guarding you from the creatures of the night.

This 70's era disco ball drink shaker serves as Willy's body with mixing beaters extended as his arms. The shake mixer sits in a metal candle holder frame that serves as Willy's legs.

DIY Robot Night Light

Rocket is a high flying, space cruising functional table lamp! At 22 inches tall, this robot is the perfect reading light or accent lamp.

Topping Rocket off is a blue glass candle holder piece attached to a stainless steel mixing bowl for heat shielding on reentry.  The clear glass 360 helmet illuminates as the heavy brass curved body adds aerodynamics.  Mixing beaters for arms and a tall globe as a thruster for legs, this heavy duty bot will shine brightly and intrigue the imagination for years to come.
