Giant Circuit Board Dragonfly: Be Glad This Thing Doesn’t Fly

by Paul Strauss

I think I’ve mentioned this before – I’m not really crazy about insects. But for some reason, dragonflies have never really bothered me. They’re big, buzzy and clumsy, but they can’t do any harm, so maybe that’s why I don’t mind them. But if I ever saw a dragonfly with a 32-inch wingspan, I think I’d run the other way.

That’s exactly what we’ve got here. This giant dragonfly sculpture measures a whopping 32″ (w) x 28″(l) x 7″ (h). The coolest part is that it’s made completely out of discarded printed circuit boards. Not a single surface of this giant bug – including it’s six stick-legs – isn’t made of electronic part-encrusted circuit boards.

I love how the legs are made of integrated circuits, and those multi-faceted capacitor eyeballs are awesome. This big bug was lovingly crafted by Steve Rodrig of PCB Creations, and is a one-of-a-kind sculpture, perfect for that geek who also has a fondness for insects.

It’s listed right now for $400 (USD) over on Etsy. While you might think that’s a lot to spend on a bunch of old circuit boards, I think it’s actually totally reasonable for all of the work that must have gone onto building this thing.

P.S. Ignore my headline. I think it would be really cool if this thing could fly.
