I will always consider Futurama to be one of the greatest cartoons ever made, thanks to its mix of real and fictional science, great characters and the hate-sponge known as Dr Zoidberg. You all know and love him, from his memetic quotes through to his trademark scuttle. But are you ready to meet a real-word version of the popular medical malpractice master?
Over on Tested.Com, Effects artist Frank Ippolito completed a six month project to create a real-world Dr Zoidberg. There was a ton of work involved, as Zoidberg’s face, claws, feet and body-shape were constructed. What’s most impressive however, is that the Zoidberg mask features working mouth-tendrils, all functioning via a handy remote control.
And I love it. The suit looks fantastic, and it’s just an overall massive bucket of woop woop win.
