Tetra Vaal by Neill Blomkamp

Back when Blomkamp created “Alive In Joburg” (the concept-short that eventually grew up and became District 9), he also made another concept-short called “Tetra Vaal”.  Nowadays, the rabbit ear antennae are gone, but you can still see the design influences in the robots from Elysium.
