This is the creepiest thing you will see all day. I promise. This mechanical skull comes from Japanese sculptor Y Nakajima, and is inspired by Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. I’m telling you now, don’t watch unless you want to have nightmares. It is a walking nightmare that you can’t unsee.
Theo Jansen’s work is kinda creepy, but this thing takes it to a whole new level. The legs are tiny compared to the great big skull which is just out for a casual stroll and that’s just one of the things that makes this so scary looking.
The only thing missing is grasping arms with pincers, trying to rip the flesh from your bones.
