If you enjoyed the recently covered spooky strandbeest bicycle, or the futuristic-graphic tattoo gun arm, you might love this creepy dude. The SkullWalker 2.0 is what I hope every in-home robot will look like within my lifetime. While a stained, moving skull with spidery mechanical legs might not be for everyone, artist Y Nakajima captured a lot of dark charm in one small sculpture.
This cute little scuttler is a RC-controlled sculpture made using a Strandbeestesque leg design and a detailed skull mold. The patinated head and eerie movement recall the DIY toy designs from Toy Story and supporting characters in Nightmare Before Christmas.
Why leave the ominous walking technology for large peaceful lumberers? This thing could easily move into the shadows of a well appointed goth home.
Nakajima does several types of impressive model making, including this undeniably dope design based on the hedgehog cars from Mad Max: Fury Road.

So is this a Warhammer 40k thing? It seems like it would be. The canon has examples of human skulls used as the carcase (heh) of flying and walking robots. Also, the link to the creator's website is broken.
Some one NEEDS to make a drone version of this.
