Models #MRF-000 to #MRF-999 - "Mini-Robot-Factory Series"

Due to the lack of posts at the Labs lately we have had to make some innovations to catch up with the fast pace of modern robotry. Thus, the Mini-Robot-Factory. Using Robot Factory inspired modular robot technology, a mere 1,000 data-bytes can produce an equal number of robots.

There are two versions of the factory, both each 1000 bytes:

To initialize the factory, blueprints from ten precursor robots from each of the Ten Great Galactic Nations have been fed into the machine.

These fine models are pictured below.

Strange results in IE7 for the assembly line script. IE7 complains about the script causing it to run slowly (although it only takes a second) and pops up a window asking if you want to sop the script. If you say no it completes without a problem. If you say yes (stop it) it ends with an incomplete robot at 973. You could probably break the script in two and run 500 each and the error would not manifest, but the real problem is IE7 IMHO.

Good work! Thank you.

Saw this at BBGadgets... so brilliant and lovely!
I have taken advantage of the CC license and made a small factory :

it's just a light wrapper for the brilliance that is here, and w/o worrying about 1K limits.

With your affection for javascript and ASCII art, I might humbly suggest the coolest thing I've done along those lines (that had a brief moment in the BB sun 6 years ago, sheesh) - Game Buttons! Little arcade games with a single HTML button as input and game display
