I love all of the fun, inspiring work being done in robotic found-art sculpture. Bot sculpture, built out of junk, is one of the folk art forms of the early 21st century. One of the mad practitioners of the form is Mario Caicedo Langer, of Bogotá, Colombia. Check out his Flickr photostream for other awesome bot art made from kitchen appliances, computer parts, joysticks, and other household detritus.
