DIY Articulating Claws Give Off Vecna ​​Vibes

There is no doubt that these hinged claws have a practical effect. YouTube channel The Q goes through the construction step by step. And it’s even more impressive like that. Instead of 3D printing anything, these spooky appendages are made of Popsicle sticks. While most amateur versions wouldn’t come out as clean, the video is almost enough to make it seem like they could actually try this at home. And just in time for Halloween too!

We have seen this interesting construction thanks to laughing squid. It’s not entirely clear from the video what the inspiration behind her was. The title is simply “How to get a supplement”. It shows the ability to hold a soda can. But other than that, and looking creepy, there isn’t much function. Although it’s amazing how skilled the claws are. Each joint of each finger moves independently, as shown by an ominous scratching of the fingers. And a thumbs up, of course.

Because the claws are only one-handed, it really gives off strong Vecna ​​vibes. Although in stranger things, it was Vecna’s left hand that had the long claws. Either way, it’s good to have a steady hand for opening sodas and other tasks that require a lighter touch.

Other projects from The Q include mind-blowing designs like a steampunk crawler bike and other wheel-based builds that seem impossible. There’s also an interesting but perhaps impractical hands-free umbrella. Additionally, many cardboard constructions go well beyond craftsmanship. Most of them have millions of views, proving that over-engineering things from bikes to candy machines is a popular pastime.
