This trilobite-shaped DIY vehicle was created by "Oilpunk" enthusiasts Kyrsten Mate + Jon Sarriugarte, with help from fellow makers Amy Jenkins and Tansy Brooks.

Pesco previously blogged about the little bugger here -- it's even been to Burning Man, where it no doubt terrified some trippin' hippies.

We shot this inside the Tcho Chocolate warehouse (thanks, Timothy!), with help from Boing Boing pals Eddie Codel and John Behrens. Special thanks to Karen Marcelo, who also shot the incriminating photo below.
