Mario Caicedo Langer, an artist from Bogota, Colombia, had some fun deconstructing everyday household items and then reconstructing them into junkbots. It's what we all should do with that tub full of odd remotes, broken digital cameras, outdated webcams, fizzed-out power blocks, and thousands of feet of various miscellaneous cables.

Mario Caicedo Langer's junkbots were inspired by Mousey the Junkbot, a DIY robot creation demonstrated in the video above.

Implications - The capacity of contemporary technology to transform something old and seemingly useless into a highly functional product is very appealing to consumers. Not only does this concept appeal to eco-conscious consumers wary of depleting the earth's resources, but it demonstrates the efficiency of the human race.
