This airship is made solely from recycled materials, including: aluminum malt shaker body, vintage dust-mask engine and landing gear, typewriter hammer propeller, hinge wings accented with clock parts, and cool, ornate thing on top.
While the rubber band tethers on the side help keep the lid in place, they can be released for super secret storage in the airship itself. Yes, that's right, it has storage, too!!

Did you know that, each year, 17 million robots go without arms and legs and that some never get a chance to see through transplanted eyes? In fact, every day, 4 out of 5 robot parts are cast into landfills to simply rust away.
However, there is hope. Together, we can break the never-ending cycle of waste and dismemberment.
At Robot Rescue International, our mission is to rescue, reassemble, and release robots into the world again. We believe that, while all robots are not created equal, they ARE endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Personality, and the Pursuit of Appendages.
Please join us in this crusade to end robot cruelty. Save a life. Buy a robot.
ABOUT THE ROBOT RESCUE COALITION
From recycled and found objects, those things you may remember from kitchens and garages of years past, comes the artwork of Rebecca Jackson. Her delight lies within taking things apart and reassembling the pieces in unexpected ways. From this aesthetic process emerges quirky robots and steampunk art.
When she goes on rescue missions, she doesn’t see flashlights, canisters, or teapots. She sees bodies, heads, and missing legs. Her workshop surfaces are littered with these body parts, and after trial-and-error limb and head transfusions, a robot takes shape. As she drills and bolts them together, their personalities develop, and the components tell a story that gives each one its own sense of individuality and background.
