A Christmas tradition is getting a new look courtesy of German designer Matthias Zschaler. The designer has turned the classic Nutcracker man into wooden robots capable of crushing any nut that comes its way.
Frustrated by modern nutcrackers, which are more decorative than functional, Zschaler wanted to create something closer to the original Nutcracker design that first appeared 200 years ago, according to Design Boom.
Zschaler's robot nutcrackers will be mass produced and sold by groovy product retailer Suck Uk. Do you like the robotic nutcrackers or do you favor the classic ones?
