I freaking love this concept, and can see this right at home in a niell blomkamp film.

I saw some people commenting over the "deeper meaning" of this piece. I would say that its a visual idea first, however it is certainly reflective of things that have happened (and still are?) in this world. It's not like Darren pulled the idea of a child soldier out of thin air - this shit is real and horrific, and because of this content it becomes a very powerful and moving piece. 

Like I said, totally at home in a blomkamp film. Kids forced into conflict and unwillingly augmented and retrofitted with lo-tech upgrades and equipment. It's and incredibly inspiring character idea - one I'd like to see made a reality in film someday.

Took me a minute to realize the cylinders were grenades. Powerful stuff...

Kinda shocked more futuristic warfare artists don't tackle this subject more often. There's so many avenues you could go down.
I could just envision warlords building deadly robots to look like children, both to unnerve soldiers and lure them into a kamikaze attack.
