The genius behind the YouTube account 'hardmouse197,' a Taiwanese born inventor, crafted their own Android robot for all under $100. This adorable Android robot made from a trash can is absolutely precious, and watching it move around is like living out a dream come true.

The body of the Android is green and was made from a trash can bought from a dollar store. The rest of the finer details are modeled after the Android logo with the eyes made from LED light bulbs and the antennas and arms made from thrifted plastic. The legs and arms of the robot are movable and are controlled by a remote and joystick, and the robot moves on wheels, making its movements more fluid. And although this futuristic robotic trash can wouldn't much actual waste, it sure does make a neat robot-on-a-budget.
