Steampunk and robots and gears, oh my Answered

Dark Roasted Blend is always full of fascinating shiny wonderful things. Following links there led me back to this older post collecting links to Nemo Gould's art robots, steampunk spiders, gorgeous mechanized beetles, and minature recycled hot-rods.

Even if you've seen it before, it's worth revisiting, and Dark Roasted Blend does, as advertised, provide a daily dose of the weird and wonderful. Today's batch also included links to Takeshi Yamada's Museum of World Wonders exhibit, which includes "over 500 post-super-realism and neo-taxidermy artworks simulating the treasures of the cabinet of curiosities" along the lines of an old-school Coney Island sideshow.

Enjoy!
