Going on 13 years of operation, the Electric Giraffe is a project designed to see "just how much life we can put into a ton of iron."
And so, the big robot is alive and well, but never actually completed. We're always be working on him!
Lindsay Lawlor never went to engineering school. Instead he went to school in the garage, building his own toys from age 8 and onward. Building his own motorcycles and repairing cars over the years, he finally got bored of that and tried his hand at robotics. In this case, he's built his own giant robot friend, the Electric Giraffe Project.
