Long before the Pixar movie hits the big screen this summer, a group of German modders have been inspired by Wall-E's cuteness to take an old and unloved Nintendo GameCube and some scraps of metal and acrylic, and put together a sweet mod that looks just like the little robot himself. It even has tank treads and a flip-down shutter, like Wall-E's, over the Gamecube's ports. Frankly, its so loveably "realistic" that we're pre-emptively sniffly, imagining what the movie will be like. [Bit-Tech via TechEBlog]
You know, for some reason, I really want to see this movie. There's is something about a stranded, lonely robot finding his purpose that I seem to connect with.
Man, I need therapy.
Seriously though, his wonderment and caring attitude, coupled with those sad eyes, makes me feel things inside. Deep inside.
