The Young Scientist – Curiousity Without Responsibility – Big robots No1

It’s funny sometimes how things turn out. After my visit to the Tiny Universe Convention I felt inspired to make myself an avatar. I blindly assumed that you could just wear a transparent texture as a skin and you would just disappear. But oh no, nothings ever that simple is it?

Turned out that the rather spindly robot that I was making had limbs that were far too thin – you need limbs thick enough to enclose the normal avatar limbs, and mine just didn’t make the grade. So rather than alter the avatar, I instead decided to create a giant robot sculpture out of it. And was rather glad that I did, as it ended up as art with a moral, hence the title “The Young Scientist – Curiousity Without Responsibility” (don’t stand too close to the focus of the magnifying glass or you’ll find out why).

This may well turn out to be the start of a series of giant robot sculptures.

And just in case you were wondering, the cute little Scootboy avatar was bought at the Tiny Universe. It makes the giant robot look a lot bigger than it actually is.

The robot in my skybox….

  1. The way to do it is to make a large invisiprim rendering the avatar limb invisible, and then putting a small prim inside of this. I’m dropping you an invisiprim in-world.

  2. Thanks Peter. I shall try it out.
