Sure it's messy, smelly, and has no idea what it is doing, but it was the owners son's idea.

Everyone came to see Joe's new project - he told them it was a multi-ARM design, carbon-based, water cooled with a central neural processor.....

@Karen while you were in YouTube looking at the "Octopus's Garden" video, did you chance to look at the "Maxwell's Siver hammer" video?   Pretty bloodthirsty stuff.....

David, it may indeed have been inspired by your comment.  Who knows what caused it to surface from my subconcious.  Glad you liked it!

Salbayang, I had that song circling around in my mind today also, and I've also had Eight Days a Week in my mind though under the the cartoon-related title, Eight Legs a Week. :)

kfield, sounds like a nice place to vacation.  I like the video too--well done and whimsical, just like the song. Per the wikipedia, the recording took 32 takes!

Another Ringo favorite:

@seaEE Thanks for sharing this delightful video and prose! My experience with being in an octupus' garden was while snorkeling off the coast of Hondurus, and it lives up to every claim in the song.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
