My final project for my stage makeup class. I decided to create a fanbot and I think I did a fairly good job. I totally forgot to grey my ears, though (blast!).
Name: Piston, named such for the customized tungsten alloy pistons in his arms and legs. These pistons are capable of exerting pressures up to 45,000 psi in optimal conditions and can land a maximum of 1000 blows per minute (fists only).
Composition: The majority of Piston’s chassis is carbon steel with the more vulnerable/weaponized sections (joints, fists, head) made up of tungsten carbide. The “hair” on the face and head is actually a radiation-based exhaust system using a large number of wires to eject excess heat. The vent structure around the mouth area is used both as an exhaust port, but also as a speaker when Piston’s standard voice is not sufficient to be heard over ambient noise. The large torso is designed to hold a reactor capable of powering Piston’s speed and strength. The reactor itself holds a large ball of “grey matter” that gives off a constant electrical charge with only mild stimulus via movement. The more movement of the vessel, the more power generated.
Short History: Piston was designed first as a construction and demolition automaton in high-risk areas. When the Great War broke out, the American government saw the military applications of such a machine. Piston was quickly bought and shipped off various locations for sabotage (breaking very big, important things) and later used on the front lines as an anti-tank/personnel/artillery unit.
