Purple McSquiggets is a talented singer and performer who can sooth you with any song you like. He was built using only the Vex Robotics Design System, faux fur and ping pong balls for decoration. He works in a manner similar to other animatronics that are used in the movies. The robot is designed to be driven by one or two puppeteers or it can be programmed to run autonomously to play a repeated routine. McSquiggets is versatile and can be used for a multitude of entertainment purposes. He can move his eyes side to side, his eyebrows up and down, his eyelids up and down and his mouth opens and closes which enables him to display a wide range of emotions for human-like expressions.

What is a McSquiggets? an old McNugget? Very awsome robot, but It would be really cool if it also played the music, or listened to music and reacted to it.
