The Fish Hammer is a goldfish-controlled device that smashes tiny furniture. Of course. It was made by artist Neil Mendoza (check out his other work), who posted instructions for making your own Fish Hammer!

It is not so much smashing as "kinda hitting it and more often than not knocking it off the platform" so I guess it is a more sustainable project?

Maybe the fish just isn't really angry yet. You wouldn't like it when it's angry.

Um, yeah. Kinda lame.

That semicircular track is really nicely constructed!

Needs to be adjusted so that it can smash your finger if you tap on the glass.

I prefer a Chimp Spanner, myself.

Awesome. Immediately I'd like to improve efficiency by giving the fish a nail gun do some framing instead of a hammer to break things...

Yes. Great concept, disappointing execution. Not helped by the fact that the fish appears totally uninterested.

That was great. I love the editing, and how devious it makes that fish seem.

This really made me smile. People are so creative.
