TD Breaks Down His Mechanically Plausible TrashBot Rig

Brenainn Jordan is a character TD Working at Andy Serkis’ The Imaginarium Studios and has worked on the film Godzilla and Ryse: Son of Rome video game.

In his spare time, Brenainn has been working on a fun robot character, the TrashBot. The robot was meant as a challenge of trying to build and rig a mechanically plausible robot. Brenainn tried to make it as believable as possible in terms of real-world mechanics.

The rig is chock-full of hinge joints, actuators and pistons that all move respectively when controllers are moved. Brenainn promises a more detailed breakdown of the rig soon, describing how some of it was put together. Cant wait for that!
