GIGANTIC 300 POUND SCORPION ROBOT
Away from the Urban areas there exist a Nevada desert where 60,000 people gathered to enjoy an event. Different sculptures from all over the world presented and insane vehicles performance has given spark to the event. And in all these mind blowing products and technologies one thing was looking totally different in fact heart stinging as it was so horrible-it was a giant looking scorpion robot with 300lb weight.
The concept came from a longtime-burner Ken Murdoch who also did the investment and to work on the design and making he approached Kirk Jellum , an aerospace engineer who left his profession just to play his vital contribution in making stuff for Burning Man full-time.We must appreciate this man because to move multiple number of parts at the same time and with different types of motion is a really tough job even for an engineer.
And to do the fire work we have seen in the video,a computer and a series of Arduino controls run programs to fire off the various torches in rapid succession and in varying patterns and the ecosystem add greatly to the wonderful making it look more eye grasping.
The vehicle is built on top of a 28 foot long 1993 International boom truck. It’s contained over 3,000 pounds of steel. It took seven months, 500 design hours and 3,500 fabrication hours to complete. Now, it roams the desert, looking for revelers to amaze and other art cars to battle.
