Mechanical Menagerie: Under the Sea

Automatons need not be confined to human-shaped robots when the whole animal kingdom is out there for mad scientists to toy with! I absolutely love the combination of the organic with the constructed so I am always collecting cool images of “mechanimals.” If you have an image to share or you see something that has been mis-attributed please let me know by leaving a comment below.

Check out this amazing video by Pes Film, whose 2013 “Fresh Guacamole” was nominated for an oscar. .

    • The little whale is really cute but I think the piranha has to be my favorite. It looks vicious!
