All terrain robots
Pictured above is the RHEX (Robot Hexapod) from the University of Pennsylvania and the imaginatively named ‘Leg Wheel Transformer Robot’ from the National Taiwan University. Both are designed with the potential to enter unsafe and rugged terrain - for instance a collapsed building.
Ecuador-based illustrator and art director Javier Pérez mixes everyday object with simple line drawings to create a whimsical and clever series of photo illustrations like the pieces seen here. The binder rings of a notebook become the jaws of dinosaur, a handful of nails are the spiny coat on an adorable hedgehog, a bunch of grapes are balloons lifting a child off his feet. It’s delightful and you can see lots more over on Javier’s Instagram account.
