Shirt.Woot’s Orga to Meka derby voting highlights

Shirt.Woot‘s Orga to Meka, Meka to Orga derby was definitely a unique theme, giving artists the prompt to either transform something organic into a robot or to turn a robot into something organic. Many designs took their inspiration from pop culture, but food and animals were also popular subject matter. Here’s a look at two current voting underdogs that I’d like to see get some more attention…

Instant Mecha by mekazoo makes ramen noodles into some kind of robotic transformer, and it’s a great mix of squiggly noodle textures and white cartons.

Better, Faster, Stronger by kg07 goes against our robot assumptions by transforming one of nature’s slowest and weirdest creatures into a mechanical contraption.

This derby continues through Thursday at noon. The top three designs (determined by votes and editor input) will each earn $1000 cash and $2 per item sold. Additionally, other designs will be selected and sold for $2 per item each. Both top vote-getters and selected designs will be sold in a future Plus sale.
