robot t-shirts
« on: July 23, 2006, 01:59:09 PM »
I am thinking of designing and making high quality robot related t-shirts offered on this site . . . anyone think this a good idea, or have t-shirt ideas?

Shirts will have semi-funny semi-geeky things on them, like:

"Actively making humans obsolete."
"Building giant robots to battle aliens."
"You wont laugh when my robots take over the world."
"When I replace your body with robot parts, Ill let you keep your brain . . . in a jar."
"My wife is a robot."

Stuff like that . . . thoughts? My target cost is under $20, including shipping.

The Segway some EEs at my college built has this kickass sticker on it.  It's a black sticker with yellow text that says "Robots WILL kill you!". 

I think an image of a mass of robots marching on Washington with picket signs saying "Repeal the 3 Laws!" or some variant thereof would be kinda funny too.

Then (not really a shirt idea, just something funny that is robot related), one of my friends has this quote on his facebook profile:
Person 1: So, what's your robot do?
Person 2: It collects data about the surrounding environment, then discards it and drives into walls!
  :D

How many of you guys have played Valve's "Portal" game?

That's a shame.  Orange box is the best game investment you can make imo.  A bunch of great games plus access to the plethora of free Source engine mods.  Anyway, back on topic.  I'm thinking of a design with the Lost in Space robot in it, I'll flesh it out during class tomorrow and post ideas later.

... and I'll be building them!"

I've seen a bunch on CafePress.com... Maybe you should just upload them there...

So actually, I was talking to a friend last night about T-shirts.

I want to have one made before April to wear at this robot contest.

A shirt would make a good 3rd place prize for the SoR contest, too, no?

Anyway, my friend said she will look into some design ideas.

Ill have it up by March I promise!

Since I was always too busy (lazy) to ever find time for this, Asellith went and set up a shirt shop for SoR (thanks dude!):

http://www.cafepress.com/societyofrobots
(you can find a link to it on the main page as well)

As of the moment, 15% of the price goes to SoR - helps pay my premium server costs, tutorial parts costs, contest prizes, advertising costs, etc.

If anyone is seriously interested in buying a shirt, but don't like the current designs, feel free to post what you'd like to see!

They use a process called 'Direct Printing'

I'm no artistic guy , so sadly I can only say if its good or bad , I don't know how to fix it.
