Because who wouldn’t want to frighten the populace with an angry neon robot? 

Built in 2012 by the art collective known as DOMA, Coloso was their entry in the Technopolis art and design event. The wire frame construction stands almost 150 feet tall and looks like a normal electricity pylon save for the shoulder spikes and the arms dangling at its sides. Neon lights are attached to a number of the beams so that at night, the whole thing lights up and is able to really shine. The chest area, or “heart” strobes and creates patterns while the robot’s face animates into various moods with smiles and winks.

Figure 4 of A. O. Austin’s June 16, 1925 paper titled “Present use of insulated controls for reducing the number of arcs to ground on transmission lines” presented in Paris, France.  This laboratory was located outside Bldg. 3 at the Ohio Insulator manufacturing plant at Park and 9th St. in Barberton, Ohio. A. O. Austin conducted most of his high voltage tests at this time using high frequency voltage generated by Tesla coils as shown in the center of the photo.

The Woolly Terrestrial Octopus (Octopus hirtus) is a land-dwelling carnivore that can grow up to four feet in length and weigh as much as seventy-five pounds. It is warm-blooded and lives in northern temperate forests, using its sharp beak to hunt for birds, squirrels, and other small rodents. It is a solitary creature that is most active at night.

The terrestrial octopus has a thick coat of fur and is able to climb trees and rocky outcrops using its strong arms, which are lined with mucus-secreting suction cups. Unlike its invertebrate marine counterpart, the terrestrial octopus has a skeleton, including a skull, rib cage, and vertebra-like columns of bones within each arm.

During mating season, the terrestrial octopus builds, in thickets of tall vegetation, distinctive conical grass-nests in which to lay its large, speckled eggs. It will lay three to five eggs, and the incubation period lasts for thirty-five to forty days.
