Drones may very well have been THE present to want/get this past Christmas, we can guarantee that nobody has done what Dutch artist Bart Jansen did back in 2012 and turned his dead cat into a drone.
While that’s certainly one way to keep your beloved pet’s memory alive – is it really all that different to taxidermy? Plus we can’t stay too mad at the thought of just how frightening this must be to any kids in his neighbourhood – what he’s up to next just smacks of attention grabbing.
This time he wants to turn a recently deceased badger into a jet-fuelled submarine, and the reason to us seems to be nothing more than because the name of it is a (admittedly very good) pun. Calling the project “Das Boot” – named after the submarine movie, plus the word ‘das’ is Dutch for badger – he’s running into difficulty getting anywhere to waterproof the animal, plus he’s under a new wave of animal cruelty accusations.
What do you think? Should he be allowed to make new gadgets from old animals?
