Steampunk Beholder Miniature robot sculpture (Thanks, Daniel!)
Since I was I kid I've been a fan of Dungeons and Dragons. The Beholder has always been one of the most feared monster... Here's my first Beholder-Steampunk-Robot . I plan to make bigger one, this one is only 4 cm large .
Right upper arm: You can imagine that arm shooting a disintegrating Newtonian beam.
Left upper arm: Triple saw made from vintage brass clock gear.
Top arm: Made from mysterious yellow amber.
Bottom arm: a single magnetic wheel for an alternative transport and stability.
Beholders floatshover above the ground. They are known to be obsessively tyrannical.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
