We're Screwed: RoboCheetahs Out in the Wild

by bradiger   July 14, 2009 at 3:15PM  |  Views: 92

After 60 hours of labor-intensive metalwork, artist Andrew Chase has doomed us by creating the next evolution in predatory animals...the RoboCheetah.

“She’s constructed out of electrical conduit, used transmission parts, disemboweled household appliances, 20-gauge steel, and a lot of fender washers,” says Chase.

The cheetah measures about 50 inches from nose to tail, weighs about 40 pounds, and stands about two feel tall. The cat was designed so that its joints mimic the movements of a real cat.

The cheetah is part of a larger art project called "The Timmy Universe." The project has already yielded a mecha-giraffe as well as a robo-elephant.

Chase priced the giraffe at a recent art fair at $6,000. No word on how much the cheetah will cost, but it's probably one of those "if you have to ask, you don't have enough" situations.
