Robot Sculptures Made From Junk, Inspired by 70’s Sci-Fi Films

Talk about putting your scrapped household electrical items to good use, as a Californian man took his love of robots and Sci-Fi movies to the next level. California photographer Larry Wong creatively came up with a way to design a range of cool looking futuristic mini droids called Mechanoids, all from junk electrical parts. Every Mechanoid carries the same materials, including copper, steel, and aluminum wires. Wong mentioned that the idea came from simply visualizing robotic parts from a pile of parts.

I take junk that would otherwise go into a landfill and turn it into art, explained Wong. Looking at [the electronic] parts, I could see that some could possibly be an arm, leg or head for a robot. After making my first robot, I was pleased with the way it turned out, so I continued making more.

Wong said his inspiration behind the design of his Mechanoids were based on the work of Swiss artist and set designer H.R. Giger — he was apart of the team who came up with the visuals for the classic science fiction film Alien.

Dude is very particular when it comes to building these tiny bots, as he puts heavy emphasis on the right shape and size to see if each part fits. For more pics of bots hit the source.
