I never heard of these until this morning. I think they're really cool and thought others here might think so as well.

There's way more stuff in the link, but they're basically all giant puppets/machines.

Such awesome stuff. I saw these ones a week or two ago, I think they're by the same guys. I love the combination of engineering and art, and the sheer scale of it.

They are awesome. The little Girl Giant and the Granny Giant were in Geneva a month ago for 3 days, here is a nice video from the final day:     https://youtu.be/WOpQmIMmTNQ
