"No Wire Hangers!"

Maybe Joan Crawford was ahead of her time. Via Boing Boing:
How-To: Build a Robot from a Coat Hanger
In this project, we'll build a little critter out of surprisingly simple, minimal parts. We'll even make use of one of those coat hangers that seem to breed in the bedroom closet. This project is an ingenious little hardware hack dreamt up by a Canadian BEAM enthusiast named Jérôme Demers. It wonderfully illustrates a number of principles of bottom-up, BEAM-friendly robotics.
And the problem with coathanger-based robots is that they can rise up against us--while wearing our own clothes! Insidious, eh?
