Sydney-based conceptual artist Dean Christ has been building what he calls his UBYKA ARMY™. It is, he claims, the new evolution of bio-warfare: “a glimpse of a near future of hyper-aggressive and high-tech cyborg insect weapons to establish a new world order…. Their mission: eradicate the human race and bring peace to planet earth. This was not called genocide. It was called recalibration.”
“At the turn of the 21st century, the Pentagon’s D.A.R.P.A (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) advanced biomechanics into the UBYKA phase – machine-insect interfaces by placing micro-mechanical systems inside the insects during the early stages of metamorphosis.
These UBYKA cyborg animals were superior in strength and agility, and enhanced with the latest technology including self-mending nanotechnology.”
Great stuff! And they’re for sale.
Check out the full range, and their specifications, here.
This bit of retro robotic silliness is pretty cool, eh?
