I’ll see your tentacle and raise you a Pigeon

December 9th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Geekologie and about a billion other nerdy sites posted about a robot tentacle prosthetic today, saying it was designed by Kaylene Kau as part of a student project. It took me a while of clicking through the cross-linking to realize I’d have to Google to find out who Kaylene is.

She’s a recent graduate from the industrial design program at the University of Washington, and she’s looking for a job. Had I known about this sooner, I’d have suggested we invite her to contribute an erotica short story to Tentacle Dreams.

Here’s the tentacle on the arm of an unidentified person who just might be Kaylene herself:

Here’s something cute she made for another project:

And here’s her portfolio site if you need to know how the Penguin Pigeon* helps relieve homesickness (hint: it involves relationships and communication, but then, you probably already guessed that):

*thanks kibbles for the catch!
