Horror Tech: Psychedelic robot monsters invade Tokyo

Showing us that the future of robot design in Japan may draw inspiration from 50s era American sci-fi, designer Noboru Tsubaki recently showed off his 43-foot tall "Mother Night" balloon sculpture in Tokyo.

Tsubaki, a professor in the space design department of Kyoto University of Art and Design, outfitted the sculpture with screens that change in reaction to the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by visitors. The work was on display during this week's Roppongi Art Night in Tokyo, a festival showing off the works of various artists dedicated to design innovation.
