What can you do with a broken tachometer and a rusted coffee pot? An old sprinkler head and a dented jello mold? A dirty tail light and an antique can opener? Paul Loughridge knows - make a robot sculpture. With flexible pipe from an old toilet and a cylinder head from a 2-cycle engine, Paul creates amazing works of art that appeal to the techno-geek and normal alike. We've reported on robot art before, but each creator offers designs unique enough to warrant their own spotlight.

Speaking of robot art made from scrap metal and junk, Curiosities in Dallas is current exhibiting about dozen robots made by a local artist who calls himself "Honest Charley". They're fairly reasonably priced too at about $250 each. You can see photos on the Curiosities website but seeing them in person is much more fun.
