Meet Mechateuthis: a giant mechanical squid driven by 8 hand cracks to control its movement. You can move its arm, tentacle, and other parts by using those cranks. This giant squid measures 7′ tall. It is made of steel for the most part.
Barry Crawford, an inventor and a Burning Man participant, is behind this creation. Not surprisingly, thousands of hours have gone into making Mechateuthis. Pretty special, don’t you think?
