What started as a useless machine ends up as a knife-wielding tentacle

I’m sure you’ve seen those useless machines before; the boxes that flip their own switch off after you’ve turned them on. What you probably haven’t seen yet is a robotic knife-wielding tentacle.

If the mention of a robotic tentacle makes you think “I’ve seen enough hentai to see where this is going,” well, you might be wrong.

Has science gone too far? Maybe, maybe not.

It all started when YouTube user outaspaceman started playing and experimenting with an Arduino board and software with a LittleBits electronics kit. This is the result.

I have no idea where he got that tentacle, but it seems to work, at least at whatever it’s supposed to be doing. But why stop there? Why not attach a Swiss Army knife to the tentacle?

This is the full version of the first video.

Now what? Well, I would suggest building another one, attaching another Swiss Army knife to it, and let them fight. Let’s just make sure they don’t become sentient or we’ll have to welcome our new robotic tentacle overlords.

By the way, if anyone’s interested in playing with some Aduino or LittleBits kits just head over to their official websites.
