Johnny 5 from Short Circuit movie built with LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox 17101

Johnny Five is alive!

Johnny 5 is the robot star from 1986 science fiction comedy film Short Circuit. One of five experimental military robots is struck by lightning and gains a human-like intelligence, prompting it to escape its facility to learn more about the world. During the movie, the robot Number 5 develops the awareness of being alive, and turns its name into Johnny 5. This movie, together with Back to the Future and Ghostbusters really changed my life, eventually helping me in the decision of becoming an engineer.

You can build this version of LEGO Johnny 5 with a single LEGO BOOST Creative Toolbox set 17101. This LEGO Johnny 5 robot can be remoted controlled with the LEGO BOOST App or the LEGO Powered Up App. You can drive it around on treads, make its arm and head swing, and shoot darts (I could not find a suitable laser for a LEGO robot).
