isobotarmor is a custom-made armor made for the isobot.
All the pieces are .032 aluminum and were made using a bandsaw, vise, and hammer. I attached the pieces onto the robot with tape and so far, except some parts, it works fine.
Also, the armor doesn't affect any of isobot's motions.

I might paint the whole thing later but so far, this is what I have.
There are two videos - I don't know why

Cool Idea. And the additional weight is no problem. Isobot on the way to a knight. Show us more of it!

Here are some pictures (if I figur out how to post them)
Also, I should give him a name. Any suggestions?

So, how do I post pictures? I can't find a URL for my pictures.
Is there a way to just attach them?

i like the idea of the armor but not on his head. You should do many of it then make artwork painting so you can have different Isobot each day.

I like his underwear too.

Thanks.I had fun making it. :P

I also thought about the head. It seems a bit awkward but he needed a helmet that would cover his face.

For a moment after making the whole armor I thought about painting it white, but I kinda liked the metallic color on it - it goes with the whole knight armor theme.

Also, any name ideas?
