A Magnificent Hand Crafted Giant Squid Flexes Its Mechanical Tentacles at Maker Faire Bay Area 2016

Mechateuthis by Elko, Nevada sculptor Barry Crawford, is an absolutely magnificent hand-crafted giant steel squid whose fully articulating tentacles flex when any or all of its eight hand cranks are turned. Taking its name from the pre-historic Megateuthis gigantea, the mechanical cephalopod was successfully funded through GoFundMe and made its debut at Burning Man 2015. Mechateuthis made a notable experience at Maker Faire Bay Area 2016.
