When I was a kid, I always thought it would be cool to have a pet monkey, you know, to fetch stuff I couldn't reach, throw excrement at people I didn't like, and such.  But now that I'm older, I've started thinking that a general purpose robot would be MUCH handier.  And less messy.  My old buddy Simon, aka Si-MOCS has built this nifty dude, Claptrap, from a video game called Borderlands 2.  You'll notice the high intensity greebling under the arm, and the well textured wheel.  But the use of the PAB cup as the eye cover is, at least as far back as I can remember, unique.  Darned clever!
