Severed Biomechanical Arm Gives New Meaning to ‘Robot Rock’

biomike

Chris Conte knows how to rock and roll. Or at least how to build machines that can assist in the task.

Having been commissioned by Adam Gontier, lead singer of alt rock outfit Three Days Grace, Conte has whipped up a microphone stand reminiscent of the final scene of Terminator. The stainless steel beast took three months to build and is originally composed entirely of found objects. I guess that makes it green, or something.

“I simply build the things I wish I had,” said Conte of the creation in an interview with Wired. “The work also expresses my fascination with advanced technology, specifically cybernetic organisms, combined with my admiration of relics from the past. Cybermechanical sculpture is perhaps one way to describe it.”

Perhaps, Chris. Perhaps.

Coming up next: A robot that can sing into this microphone, rendering rock stars obsolete entirely.
