In Brighton UK, there’s an artist the locals have dubbed ‘The Iron Womble’ – and he’s the creative mind responsible for a wave of tiny, upcycled robots all over the city!

By collecting pieces of metal and junk this mysterious artist, named Professor Screwed, of Screwed Sculpts, is taking recycling to a new level – handcrafting what he finds into tiny robot sculptures with fantastic results!

From ferocious sci-fi warriors to doting family droids, guitar wielding androids and more, these upcycled robots come in a wide range of themes; and the Professor leaves them around the city (or wherever he is) for people to find. Each robot is completely unique, and part of a unique universe where each bot has its own back story.

If you keep your eyes peeled, there may just be a sci-fi friend ready to meet you. All the Professor asks in return is a picture of lucky finder’s new mecha friends. And from local kids, to international visitors, a lot of very lucky people have now found a bot! Plus there are more to find each week – sometime’s they’re even hidden internationally by the Professor’s friends and followers, so look out!

If you’ve not found a bot, don’t worry – the Professor also makes bespoke sculpts to order, on any theme you can imagine.

He creates them in his studio, then leaves these bots around the local area and wherever he visits for people to rehome.

Each week there’s a new robot to find somewhere – the Professor announces the rough location on Facebook.

There are more than just free robots available though. The Professor also takes orders for bespoke sculpts on any theme.

Sometimes the orders are truly unique – like these Viking bots!
