The Fantastic Mechanical Creatures of the Isle of Nantes


Due to the influence of Sci-Fi movies, many of us have an obsession with giant robots. How cool would it be to ride a gigantic robotic dinosaur or elephant? It would be even cooler to control one!


Regretfully, the modern technologies are not yet sophisticated enough to fulfill this dream. Pierre Orefice and François Delarozière, however, came very close.


These two artists have made it their goal to turn Nantes, France, into a hot tourist destination spot for people who love robots.


In their project of Machines de l’île in Nantes, they have created a whole park of robotic monstrosities, ranging from a giant 3 story high elephant to a 2 meter long centipede crawling on a rail track.
