Dave, the Solar-Powered Zombie Bugbot


Anyone who ever had a Furby and wanted to kill it after the first 20 minutes can surely sympathize with Etsy artist "tiny minds." As part of his Solar Bugbot series, he took what was left of his and turned it into Dave, the solar-powered zombie Furby. In order to do this, he skinned and gutted the deceased creature then installed a small solar motor. He subsequently mounted it on a plinth, whatever a plinth is. After Dave stores up enough energy his eyes, ears and mouth get moving. Even tiny minds calls it "eerie." Be that as it may, the one of a kind Dave can be yours for $95.00.

Furbies had a mortar? That makes them even more evil!
