His arms are made of corrugated plastic pipe. His nose is a doorstop. His ears are the cap to a jug of detergent.

He is a robot who is turning heads at the corner of Fessenden Street and Reno Road in Northwest D.C.

Father and son, Theodore and Ben Carter from Takoma Park, Md., have turned a traffic control box owned by the District Department of Transportation into a piece of street art. They haven't damaged the box.

DDOT tells FOX 5 the robot will be dismantled.

However, the change brings a few extra smiles from drivers and pedestrians passing by the intersection.
