Simone Giertz Builds a Cute, But Crappy Robot Dog

Simone Giertz is the queen of building crappy robots. It’s her calling. We love her for it. Her latest robot may be the cutest/crappiest robot yet.

Here’s some backstory on this sad robot dog: YouTube celeb JennaMarbles gave a shout out to Simone in one of her videos, so what better way to return the compliment than to build a shitty robot version of her dog Kermit? And so, this 4-legged highly non-functional robot was born. It has a servo on each leg, but still can’t walk around properly. It is so terrible at moving around, I feel sorry for the thing. Maybe she should just put it out of it’s misery.

One day, Simone is going to go too far and one of her terrible robots will become sentient, and we are all gonna be screwed.
