Romanian artisan Andreea Strete creates these delightful TinyRobots
, charming anthropomorphic creatures made of recycled electronic components.
She describes why she started the project:
I try to keep electronic waste out of the environment by making these up-cycled characters, assembling the components and transform them into something more than just scrap. Each TinyRobot is fully encased in resin, easy to carry around with you! They even come with a certificate of adoption! Robots are people too!
Check them out! Looks like a fun DIY project for kids, too!
