The Joseph Drust Steampunk Minions Perform Simple Tasks

The Joseph Drust Steampunk Minions are a collection of bizarre little creatures that can perform some pretty cool tasks for their owner.

By plugging the tiny robots into an USB port, the characters can dance along to music, glow and light up and get their game on to popular Nintendo NES titles. Each sculpture is made from recycled and reused electronics and computer parts that are still operational and power the robot's activities. Everything from tesla coils and old LCD screens can be found in these bronze-colored statues.

There are several designs to choose from such as scuba gear and gas mask-equipped men, turtles that resemble Bowser from Super Mario and a creature with a parascope on its head.
