What do you get if you cross the design style of Alien set designer H.R. Giger and an engineer who builds huge, surrealist weapons? Well, you get a huge surrealist weapon in the style of H.R. Giger — which looks great.
YouTube user Michael Craughwell posts a series of videos that show him crafting all sorts of grizzly tools. His creations are usually inspired by video games, but his latest makes a change, perhaps inspired by the recent Alien day.
You Call THAT A Biomechanaxe Axe?
Michael names the tool a 'biomechanaxe,' which looks like the kind of instrument that wouldn't look out of place barbarically crushing Alien skulls. In the video, which lasts over 45 minutes, he meticulously welds and grinds the piece together. The final result is incredible.
H.R. Giger was a renowned designer who won an Oscar for his design work on the set of Alien. As well as designs that were picked up by record albums, furniture, and tattoo art, he also directed a number of films, including Swiss Made (1968), Tagtraum (1973), Giger's Necronomicon (1975) and Giger's Alien (1979).
