Help Rebuild The MakerTron Robot Population!

The Challenge: Design C.O.R.E Extensions

Remix currently needs heads and limbs to mobilize the handful of C.O.R.E.s he has on his starship. The priority is to get these MakerTron C.O.R.E.s up and running so torso designs are not yet necessary. To kickstart the MakerTron re-population, design one or more of these robot parts:

  • head
  • arms
  • legs

These parts must successfully interface with the MakerTron C.O.R.E.
