Robot Steel Alien

Robot Steel Alien

This was just one of several stunning steel sculptures created by the folk at RobotSteel.com on view at The Gadget Show at the NEC Birmingham this weekend.

Based in Ireland, RoboSteel designs and creates handmade steel sculptures inspired by science fiction and fantasy films.

The company says it's completed many commissions for customers from around the world, including promotional props for Hollywood, and futuristic robots for gaming arcades in Japan and Singapore.

Large commissions have included a giant 8foot robot which one lucky winner received from Trukz, an online games company.

I'm surprized they haven't yet explored comics for inspiration. ABC Warrriors, anyone?
