Hi there. My name’s Mark and 30 odd years ago I used to sit in front of my parents’ electric fire making robots and spaceships out of cogs, wheels and bits of wood that my dad bought back from his job as a clock repairer.
Fast forward to the present day and here I am making Gizmobots. Gizmobots are found object robots that start life as finds from skips, second hand shops, car boot sales and scrap yards. Each robot is carefully crafted by me so that all the parts come together to create a very desirable quirky robot, each with their own personality. As a qualified electronics engineer, I sometimes re-appropriate old electronic equipment to give some of the robots I make a purpose, such as being an I-pod dock, a desk light or a working radio.
Gizmobots make the ideal present for the person who has everything as each one is unique and comes with its own instructions explaining its personality, likes, dislikes and hobbies.
I hope you enjoy meeting my creations!
