Animate Inanimate Objects

Concept sketches for inanimate objects brought to life. Coming off the previous robot project, it turns out there is a fine line between animated object and robot. Take for example the water tower below. This was one of my favorite designs but the critique group couldn't get over the War of the Worlds aspect. Similar issues with the wind turbine bird I'm afraid. Also I got a lot of confused looks about the otoscopes at the very bottom. I thought most people would be familiar with them, but I guess not. Maybe I was just a sickly child.
