Project: The FBBb is a funky gigantic brain mounted on a bird’s body. It’s wings flap, beak articulates, makes sounds, lights flash, and moves around on a radio controlled platform. It is powered by a solar charged 12v battery. It is the newest in THEGIANTBRAIN series. Someone called it a Chucky Cheese animatronic gone weird or weirder. The 5’ tall piece is made of hacked toys, micro-processors, electric motors, new and recycled materials and much more.
