No, dear reader, the title is not a reference to Marilyn Manson’s hit record from the 90s, but actually quite literal. Just mechanical animals!
These are the product of Andrew Chase‘s work, moving mechanical sculptures made out of spare parts such as automobile transmission parts, electrical conduits, plumbing parts and sheet steel.
The movements are pretty natural looking, and good equivalents to what the animal can do in its organic counterpart. As you can tell, Chase has a sharp eye for animal movement, and puts attention where it counts.
We saved the best for last, though. First, here’s our favorite piece, the Tyrannosaurus!
And second, we couldn’t end this article without linking to the video where the actual movement can be appreciated. Enjoy!
Speaking of robots, there’s plenty of stuff you can check out now, such as Bipedal Robot Displays Impressive Sense of Balance and RoboCops Patrol South Korean Prisons.
