And it only took 3 days to build it after I enjoyed the original contents of the keg (of course) The body is from a 5 liter Heineken keg the head is a stainless steel mixing bowl, the shoulders are tin cupcake molds and the wheel housings are butter dishes. The robot is has a 4WD drive train using hacked servos running at 9.6 VDC that are controlled by two Vantec RET411 speed controllers. For fun the robot has a i-Pod shuffle a set of amplified speakers and a light organ kit and LED strips
