Imagine if it was animated and could flex its legs and tail
I was just wishing that was a thing
That would be so cool. But freaky.
It is possible, you'd need some small motors and rope inside of it, make it water proof, have a wire coming off of it into the base into a programmable chip that occasionally sends pulse to the motor
100%, even cheaper would be to use one servo motor. It would make all the legs twitch together but it could look cool.
Add something to randomize the movement! Any time of the day, or night, it should just start and stop on its own!
That would be amazing! Maybe even a sensor for light changes and/or movement. It would be cool to see it react and twitch when the lights are turned on. Or if the glass is tapped.
Motion detector. They are cheap. Can be scavenged from cheap night lights.
capacitive touch sensors are also super cheap, and could definitely be implemented for tapping the glass.
And an option to set it on a timer and keep one in the guest bedroom on the nightstand. Bonus if it the contents could be completely obscured until the alarm time.
Calm down Satan!
That's a huge compliment, thank you. I think ive found my life's calling
That is very possible OH WE COULD ATTACH A BLUETOOTH MODULE, and make it dance to music whenever we play some toons😆 so we have it on creepy mode then switch it to dance mode for memes
And sell NFT of all the dance combos you compose!
Please get on that and contact me cuz I need this in my life
Also needs to have a motion sensor for when you get really close where it jumps
Don't even need that, just make the model around a bladder and use air or hydraulic pressure to flex it.
UGHHGHHHGHHGH just the thought is enough to make me shudder
Put ferrous metal encased in tips of limbs with flexible joints. Put electromagnet in base and top.
Occasionally induce a variable strength and polarity magnetic field.
Just use fishing line since the fluid is already pretty opaque
Or forego moving parts and just add a couple of electromagnets in the upper and lower rim to attract metal inserts in the face-hugger.
All of the parts that are used in RC planes and boats would work perfectly from inside of it.
What are you waiting for?
Ok ill see what I can make. I will attempt to buy supplies and come up with a blueprint
Take it step further and make it an alarm that's programmed to look for your face and have it crawl out and hug your face. We have the technology!
I'll pass bruh
Well, trouble awakening has been solved.
It should first give you an audible warning so you can wake up on your own and save the face hugging for slow wakers. Maybe: "You got a real purty mouth ain't ya?"
Nah it will probably sent you back with heart attack
Looks like love at first sight
Came looking for this quote.
Was not disappointed.
But only for a second, in random 10 to 20 minute intervals. Occasionally a twitch.
"Hey.. did thing just move?"
Dude the twitching would be awesome
It could act as an alarm clock and wake you up by suddenly lunging up against the glass with a loud thump!
That scene made everyone in the theater jump. Hell of a bad way to wake up though…
Looks like someone’s in love!
Or movements so slow you can’t tell it’s moving but come back a couple hours later and it’s in a new position
It's watching you
Wake up in the night and just hear clink clink. You think to yourself what the hell? Then you hear it again. Clink clink. Go to switch on your lamp and this thing is fucking wriggling around. No way in hell.
WHY?? LMAO I would shit my bed every fucking time it moved.
It'll be rly cool tho
Your friends will be like WOAH
Ohhh that's good
Let the legs repeatedly hit the lamp to make an alarm. And if it's snoozed too long, the glass will break.
and can make screeching sounds for your alarm clock
But it doesn't say that in the ads and buyers will be unaware
As someone who saw Alien for the first time at age 6 and has had recurring nightmares of it his entire life, all the nope.
Haha! Like just some slightly perceptible reflexes would be awesome!
Like a random twitch.
with a motion sensor mode. off/always on/motion activated
And now I’m gonna have nightmares about a lamp I don’t even own!!
Just an alarm that’ll have it flail about
Aww, yes! And a little bubbler in the bottom - maybe some bump sensors so it flexes when you tap on the glass.
Literally everyone responding to my comment gives more and more ideas for the design and I'm definitely not liking it. It's creeping me out LOL
T'was my first thought when I saw this
It should twitch every few hours.
Imagine it was not and did it anyways 😬
I'd love if it tried to escape every hour, like bubbles and a strong little shake on the hour that many times.
Thanks for that thought. Sleep is highly overrated anyway.
Is this a thing for sale? Because If the lamp in the pic isn't for sale, then I'm totally making my own and I'll make sure to add animatronics
i mean i dunno but if you can make it even creepier go ahead
I'd hug the face of anyone who'd give me one of these.
well done… now get out back on your ship
"Looks like love at first sight to me."
If i knew how i would go out of my way to make the facehugger wiggle it’s fingers
Bonus points if you manage to pair it with some sensors. That way, it will only move if someone is close enough.
Thanks, but I'm just evil.
I'd buy one of these as a present for my sister, then secretly buy a second one and remove the alien.
After making her watch the alien movie one night. I secretly switch out the lamps while she's asleep.
I'll make a loud noise in the middle of the night, so she wakes up and turns on her lamp. Only to see the alien is missing.
After that night. I'll hide the alien somewhere in her room, to eventually discover it.
satan:Just wanna say Imma huge fan.
Ah, a moment of laughter, a lifetime of therapy.
As you do.
Satan is afraid of you
I randomly came across a rubber face hugger alien at a yard sale. I took it home because my roommate loved Alien. Then began our escapades of trying to hide the face hugger in places to scare each other.
What I'm saying is: you need a rubber facehugger to make this plan really come together ;)
You are one evil motherfucker.
The money in my bank account was gone the moment I saw this
I opened the comments to find a purchase link.
Did you find one?
Did you?!? I can’t.
It seems to have been a homemade Halloween project, so no, not for sale
Every comment is asking where to get it. I only clicked the comments hoping someone posted a link. I got my card out and everything
Where can this be bought? :D
Alien was my first R rated movie. My Aunt said it wasn’t that scary. She said it was Iike a tense Star Wars. I had nightmares for 2 weeks thinking these thing were in the duct work at my house. I still hold that against my Aunt 40 years later.
The little jar the facehugger is in looks like one of Vader's bacta tanks lol
More like "shut up and take my money!".
Seems to be a hand made Halloween project ?
I'll never make a Pinterest profile to view a picture.
I found a [video showing how to build](https://youtu.be/xfr64zoBTAQ) them with a 3D printer and some acrylic tubing. Not sure if this helps anyone but thought I’d share it.
Damn you I was actually excited for that
Right? It was so hard to read through the comments.
That was a dirty move. May a candiru crawl up into your urethra next time you pee in water!
I agree, but I also hate you for uttering this sentence.
Damn you....well played
You son of a bitch!
Oh fuck my entire life existence 😂
Oh fuck off.
Sir, society would be so much better if you used that creativity of yours for good.
Thank you for this, I had a long day, and wasn't expecting this.
This is the most garbage comment I’ve ever seen on Reddit. I hope you have three days of bad luck for this.
Yea I followed the tutorial step by step but it seems to have broken out... Flamethrower anybody?
Great tutorial! Thanks for sharing!
He's to dangerous to be left alive!
I actually like this but hate that you made me watch a commercial first.
Ty. That was rather helpful.
I love that this sub is almost always just shit that's obviously terrifying.
Nope. Nope. Lots of no. Still one of the scariest movies for me. But I might get one for my nephew...
I don't care if I was there when it was made. If I saw it getting molded and the pieces put together. I don't care if I _helped_. I would never have that in my house. I would not sleep well.
Not terrifying this is cool where can I buy.
That's cool as shit. I'd buy one.
One of my favorite movies of forever. Best friend & I went opening night. Last feature of the night, two macho guys bragging how it didn’t scare us. Standing by the car in the dark parking lot, I think friend was enjoying a smoke. Behind us the building A/C unit kicked on. Sounded EXACTLY like the sound the alien made. Both of us almost jumped out of our skins, jumped in the car & hauled balls getting out of there. Drove in silence for a few miles then started laughing at ourselves. All of sudden we were macho again & no, the movie didn’t scare us. Jajaja!
Alien or Aliens?
Apologies I wasn’t clear. The original : Alien.
People will post the creepiest shit on this sub and be like “ThIs iS ODdLy TeRriFyInG”.
Right? This is regular terrifying.
Is there any subreddit that doesn't eventually go to shit?
It's a sci-fi horror monster, how could someone even think that it wasn't fully intended to look scary? I guess every sub is doomed to become r/pics 2.0, once it reaches a certain size
A snack for later.
Careful. Burke might break it.
If my husband had this I'd wait til he was sleeping and remove the face hugger then put it back.
What's the point of this sub anymore? This isn't "oddly terrifying", this is made to be somewhat scary, maybe if you're a child.
need where to buy?
Need to know where to buy these.
Imagine waking up one morning and its empty...
This is so freaking cool!
Where the actual fuck can I get one of these?!
I LOVE the Alien movies (some of them anyway) and I love the Alien wider universe. I still can't complete Alien Isolation because I'm too scared of it.
I also love collecting things from franchises I love.
I absolutely hate this lamp and just seeing a picture of it gives me anxiety.
It's beautiful and amazing, but it terrified me and I hate it.
Someone get me a link. I need one.
WHO THE HELL NEEDS TO TAKE MY GOD DAM MONEY?!!
Where can I buy this
I want it, but I'd br shitting myself every tine I'd wake up in the middle of the night.
Where do get?
like it tho
I WANT ONE
Hell fucking no...
Where can I get one?
Mom I’m scared of the dark can you get me a night light …
I'd buy a duplicate but have it empty. So when people visit, I'd switch it out in the middle of the night and maybe have something skitter across the ground.
You wake up one morning and it’s empty
Link to buy please
Where did you get this?👀
What are you gonna do when one day you wake up and the tube is empty?
That's easy, you just don't wake up. Lmao
I need that
I need this so bad
I want the option to be able to pay extra to make it wriggle at the most random of times.
I need that 😯
nah thats just dope
This is cool AF and I want it
Not on my bedside lol
Where can I get one of these
Where can I procure one of these?
Cool. Just don’t open it.
I want this now omg
That’s mighty cool.
If it wiggled when the glass was tapped would be awesome.
Everybody gangsta till it breaks open at 3:00 AM
I need this immediately.
Is it allowed to ask for a source here or am I being kicked out of the sub again?
Damn I want one so bad I love alien
Man, my parents let me watch these movies a little too young or perhaps made my already bad night terrors even worse when these fuckers started hunting me through my dreams.
Where’s the “oddly” part?
Noot, get out of there,
Want that! NOW!!
I know someone who would buy this in a heartbeat. I got the Pinterest link but I didn’t see the option to purchase, am I just using Pinterest wrong?
Does Pinterest normally let you buy things off it?
Not that I've seen, but you do get Etsy and eBay links on there sometimes
That makes sense
I want this!
I. NEED. THIS!!!
I WANT ONE!!!!
Ah just wait till you wake up with the tube smashed and it’s gone
That is fucking awesome.
I want one.
