Naia is handcrafted out of old, used, and discarded parts. Many times parts from computers, printers, radios, typewriters, toys, etc. are torn apart and used. Parts like electrical boxes, electrical conduit, electrical hardware, fuses, vacuum tubes, tins, toys, etc., are bought from various secondhand shops and antique boutiques. After the parts are all found and disassembled the robot is put together with wire. The wire is sewn through each of the robot’s parts, connecting everything together. There is a structural wire, which holds the robot up and together. This wire is bought from a hardware store. The secondary wire is more decorative. This wire can be from telephone wire, networking wire, industrial cables, etc. that gets stripped down. Other wire used is wire meant for jewelry making. Most of the hands are some form of electrical clips or connectors.
If you’re bored with the robot’s current pose, the wire makes it possible for you to move the arms, legs, head, or antenna, around to something that better fits your needs.
Each robot comes with an identification tag, which shows the robot’s individual name and the robot’s unique number
