How a Father-Son Duo Turns Trash Into Transformers

One man’s trash is another man’s transformer!

Wonderful video from Great Big Story.

In 2010, Chinese farmer Yu Zhilin and his son Yu Lingyun opened up their own metalworking shop in the country’s Hunan Province. Inspired by the futuristic robots from the movie “Transformers,” the pair began fashioning original statues from scrap metal. Their first design took about a month and a half to build, but they’ve since created an impressive array of statues, giving new life to discarded car parts along the way. It’s not just the success of their new business that makes this father-son duo happy; the craft itself has brought them closer together.

  1. Hi, I apologize for the off topic comment, but I think I found a problem in your Adafruit_MQTT.cpp file (Arduino library, the latest/master branch). There are a couple of places where the pgm_read_byte macro is used on non-progmem pointers (like if (pgm_read_byte(username) != 0), etc…). Please let me know if I’m wrong.

    Thanks.

    Bogdan.
