In celebration of ReCore’s recent launch, Robo Challenge, a Birmingham, UK-based company, has built a working 3D printed replica Mack the DogBot, one of the game’s sidekick characters. For those still unfamiliar with ReCore, it is the latest video game release by Microsoft, in which players take on the character of engineer Joule Adams, who finds herself as the only survivor on the distant colony world of Far Eden and must figure out what has happened to the rest of the colonists with the help of a team of robots. One of those robot companions, as you may have guessed, is DogBot Mack.
The action-adventure video game, which was only just released, has inspired excitement from a number of gamers, most notably the team from Robo Challenge, who have recreated in the robo-flesh a functional version of Mack the DogBot. The project required extensive work, from 3D printing all the parts for the robot, to programming electronic motors, to assembling them, etc., but we’ve got to say the results are well worth it! You can check out the adorable final video below.
