Gruesome/Awesome Web-Controlled Puppet
UK maker Rosemarybeetle builds some fantastic-looking creations. Most recently, he published build instructions to make his gruesome and slightly terrifying web-controlled puppet, called Twitr_janus. I'm seriously impressed by this maker's wide range of talents. Twitr_janus' face was first modeled in clay, then cast in silicone latex, and the final visage was made from hot glue poured into the mold. The head was formed by carving polystyrene, paper machéing over the top, and then removing the polystyrene to leave a hollow skull, ready to hold the brains (an Arduino).
