Robo boxer

This is a shot of my workspace at the old studio. We were commissioned by the guy that came up with the "Soloflex" to sculpt a mechanical boxer. The client was going to market these life size electronic stepper motored robots as workout devices that actually punched back! I was able to see some of the mechanics for the prototype and it looked pretty interesting. To my knowledge it never took off even though I did produce a full sized sculpt of this.

In the background is the old "Clay-balls" wall. We had a game set up where the object was to throw a clay wad at the yellow target. After a few years this wall became quite covered with little balls of Van Aken clay.
