    Unless these actually walk, I’d say they are certainly short of amazing.  This seems on a par with making doll furniture from beer cans.  Certainly more portable than the dinosaurs made from old truck parts you can see sold at the side of the highway.

    I don’t see why you can’t make one yourself.

    Oh wait, you need to make yourself a watch that gets you arrested in California. Circuit board and switches, ooh scary!

    It would be awesome if he could put a switchable LED in the bulb.

    Is this the sort of stuff that gets artists arrested at airports?

    No explosives found, but still in jail.

    I gasped when I first saw this and thought that it might actually walk around and light up, but in the next second realized that it was instead probably just an assemblage-type piece. It’s still super fun to look at, especially in nice macro shots like that.

    I wish that I had used my experiences as a sculpture and jewelry making student and electronics assembly technician to make things like this before arthritis scuttled my plans for a life doing fine work with my hands. The Internet seems to make it trivial to get your work in front of an appreciative audience these days. Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking.
