Kid Scratch Builds BB-8

Ball body scratch-built from paper mache & canvas on a beach ball. Wonderful use of everyday objects. No 3D printing or CNC. I'm impressed!

"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

- Pablo Picasso

  • This looks like a new use for the Arlo robot. Put it in a ball and watch it go.

    Soldering wires to Li-ion batteries to make a battery pack? Yikes! Kids, don't do this at home! There's a reason these batteries are spot-welded to make battery packs, not soldered.

    Still, an impressive project.

  • Well, I'm impressed! The vast majority of adults would not have the smarts, patience, and perseverance to complete such a project. An amazing young man.
