Wall-E Has Nothing on Mech Virus

Sure, Wall-E is all cute and adorable, but does he spew melted floppy disks? No. This is why I, in my humble opinion, think that Mech Virus is way cooler than Wall-E could ever hope to be.

The actual tech behind Mech Virus, on display at Maker Faire 2009, is pretty simple, it's just a motor and a power supply that allows Mech Virus to waddle and spit out a Norton Anti-Virus CD every 30 seconds or so. The actual motherboard components don't work at all, making Mech Virus more about appearance, and less about action. But still I love it. [Maker Faire 2009]
