Steampunk Mechanical Giraffe


Andrew Chase is at it again.


From the man who brought us the Steampunk Mechanical Elephant comes this addition to the bestiary.


He wrote, "This is my second giraffe (I made the first one to use in "Timmy").


I made it out of transmission parts, electrical conduit, and plumbing pipe. All the joints rotate and lock.


Turning a removable crank on the Giraffe's side raises the neck. Lifting the tail releases a catch and lowers the neck.


It's about 6 feet tall and it took about 80 hours to build. This is the first sculpture I've put up for sale. Right now he's at a crafts fair in Texa. Asking price is $6,000."


Cheap at twice the price.


Tell him I sent you, he's got a great sense of humor.

Is this robot programmed to give human pleasure?

Hum... it lacks a steam engine, so it shouldn't be considered a steam punk giraffe.

Let's leave it as a robot giraffe.
