#1882 Marionettebot

A spherical robot with jointed arms and legs and an antenna. It has strings attached to its hands, feet, and antenna bobble, leading up to a marionette cross-brace, which is manipulated by itself, rendered as a version some 50% larger hovering above it. Likewise, the robot has its own cross-brace and a 50% smaller version of itself is suspended from it, and so on and so on, presumably into infinity.

We wanted a robot that was a string-operated puppet, but it felt weird having another robot control it, so we used Recursivebot technology to have it control *itself*, and created a kind of low-tech version of Mechbot...
