A Chinese farmer fascinated by technology has built himself 26 robots over the past 30 years. Wu Yulu, 46, who has only a basic school education, designs the robots himself and builds them from scrap materials.

Mountain Magic Originals

As anyone who reads Oldster’s View regularly knows, I only very rarely endorse anything but I was recently sent several images of art done by Richard Carpenter of Mountain Magic Originals and to say I was impressed would be an understatement. The pictures below are examples of Richard’s work.

This life size bear is made from thousands of pine needles and took eight months to complete.

You’ll find lots more examples of Richard’s work, including many more carvings and jewelry at his web site, Mountain Magic Originals. Good stuff. Look it up.
