Animals from old electronic parts Answered

While browsing earlier I came across this gorgeous collection of animals made from electronic parts which features, among others, an owl, a deer, a horse, a flamingo, and a theropod (my guess is T. Rex, but who am I to say?). Gears become joints, springs become necks, wires become hair, chips become feet. The attention to detail and overall construction is incredible. I wish I could track down the creator, but I haven't been able to find out who made them or when. Anyone?

EDIT: the author is Ann P. Smith. Thanks, Andib!

Does the owl remind anyone else of Bobo from Clash of the Titans

Damn, beat me to it. But yeah, it does. Next, make a bird that reads your "twitter" messages

I think the key is to have a mountain of electronics parts on hand. I doubt you could make anything this nice with only a VCR or two.

Haha! Yeah, I think you are right, I only have one shelf filled with 'raw' electronics and a few unslaughtered electronics appliances.

Those are so cool looking! They seem like they would be soooo difficult to make. I especially like the moose one :D And the owl one, because I like owls.
