The Cock­roach Beat­box — Greg Gage (by TED­E­d­u­ca­tion)

This video was shown at TEDx­Utrecht and then I got to see Gage do the same thing again live at TEDxBrus­sels a few days later.

What I find most inter­est­ing here is that Gage has turned the image of a cock­roach with one leg missing—something many peo­ple find discomforting—into a kind of mascot.

More work by Gage that involves ani­mals: play­ing music through a squid and a DIY remote con­trol roach.
