Giant styrofoam robots on the attack!

Surrounded by an army of pint-sized sentry Styrobots, the gargantuan 'bot is actually made from discarded packing materials, hung on a wooden skeletal system for support.

Have they nothing better to do? What a waste of human resources.

a waste of human resources? if perhaps it generates even just discussion about looking at materials in our world with transformative potential, then I don't think it's a waste of time. As the planet runs dry of resources, maybe something right under our noses can be imagined as something new and different. Even old ideas can be revisited, re-approached from a new perspective in a new context. I hardly see that waste of human resources.
