Poco Bot Go!



This little paper bot has 6 points of rotation and is made from one sheet of cardstock! You will get good results printing it on 67 lb coverstock as well as 110lb cardstock, or whatever else you may have that qualifies as thick paper.


The art and design of Poco Bot is based around the works of my favorite paper artists, some of whom are linked to on the left.


Please share what you think about building and playing with your own Poco Bot. One of my goals is to make my paper models even easier to put together, but that requires your help!

Man, the mechanisms are pretty cool!
My kids and I will definitely have fun with this one!

You say "feel free to modify"... can you post your designs in some kind of vector format which makes it easier to modify them?
PDF is nice when it comes to printing... but not when you like to modify things...

I built the Green Poco Bot while snowed in last week. It was very enjoyable and rewarding. I made a video of the dance party we had afterwards. I hope you like it!
