If you really want some creepy, awesome shit lying around your apartment, you should check out Mike Libby’s Insect Lab. Based out of Maine, Mike takes insects and couples their bodies with mechanical watch parts and the such. A spider with some cogs and gears in its back is without a doubt the coolest/creepiest thing I’ve seen to date. He’s got everything from spiders to butterflies to beetles.
All of his work looks absolutely amazing. Too bad amazing work comes at a price—it will cost you anywhere from $175 to $400 depending on how complex, beautiful, and stunning it is. Pick up one for the troubled mechanical engineer in your family or just to gross someone out.
