Cutie Automata

These wind-ups from Japanese designer duo Maywa Denki are extraordinarily cute, and may prove to be a worthwhile inspiration point for creating something lovable rather than harrowing.  I haven’t yet decided whether I’d like my creative response to be outright horror, yet I think Masaaki Yuasa’s Happy Machine short exemplifies the fact that the two (cute and terrifying) can go hand-in-hand quite effectively.
