pet cyborg 2 - unpainted by ariscene pet cyborg 2 - unpainted by ariscene
This is my next pet cyborg project.

The basic idea is that the translucent plastic components that electricians use to couple lots and lots of cables (how are they called, really?) look like spines. So, I took a couple I had picked up from a construction site and linked them to make the body of this centipede-like cyborg. I used about 60 steel needles to make it stable, and give it the bent shape I needed.

The rest is either salvaged toy parts or scratch-built components (and cables, and beads).

His name is CP-06, and he hates it.
He also hates it when people think he is a centipede :D

It's funny how a coat of paint is all it takes to jump genres from cyber- to steam-punk. Your cyborgs look cool either way.

"the plastic components that electricians use to couple lots and lots of cables"
Electricians call those things "chocolate" in my country. Seriously. Very clever little creature, and it's so cute. Congrats on the DD on the finished product. :)

Love his multicolored feet! He could be unpainted and be an albino, or cave version, haha.
