The butterflies are built from old recycled phones.
Both cutting-edge mobiles and retro handsets can be seen in the butterflies' construction.
Each butterfly has its own phone number.
When you call this number, the butterfly springs into action.
"Extendable antennae, a head which moves on more than one axis of freedom and laser eyes" are some of the touted abilities. Yipes.
The butterflies feature wings made of phone screens, which beam out unique patterns.
The robots took seven months to build.
Please please please don't let this become sentient.
