Yoichiro Kawaguchi's fanciful squids


These 3-D models of professor/computer graphic artist Yoichiro Kawaguchi's computer graphics are Woodring-esque mind blowers. According to Pink Tentacle, Kawaguchi and his team of researchers are "developing robots designed to imitate primitive life forms. Mockups have been put on display at a Shinto shrine in Tokyo, and working versions of the robots are scheduled for completion in two years."


  1. Back before he did children’s books, David Kirk designed the most gorgeous pulltoys. These very much remind me of those toys.

  2. Saw one of those fishy guys at the AEC in Linz, Austria. Excellent craftsmanship. Can’t wait to see a robotic version of it, even though it will haunt my dreams.
