I've put a lot of thought into what would be cooler than a liger - we're talking hours of wasted sketching and planning. The answer was obvious. A miger, or mechanical tiger, is a fusion of form and technology that even Napoleon Dynamite fans can appreciate.

Shiva is a miger by artist Kezanti, and apparently you can ride it. Hit the jump for the ultimate fusion of man, beast and it a little slower and less fierce than we are eventually hoping for. Just remember, migers need to walk before they can fly and shoot lasers out of their eyes.
