Enormous mechanical tardigrade

Recommended Posts

I am going to construct an enormous mechanical tardigrade, because tardigrades are brilliant as are enormous mechanical things. Doesn't really require further explanation. It'll be steam powered of course.

I've begun fleshing out the base mesh in MODO. I expect I will prepare this as though it was for a real-time engine as that's my area of expertise.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Tardigrade (AKA Water Bear), it is a microscopic creature that's nearly indestructible, and sort of cute in an unknowable Lovecraftian horror kind of way.

Fascinating critters! Good choice for Steam treatment. The skin looks like canvas in the way it folds.
