But if you REALLY like things blowing up, burning, melting, etc., you
should check out Survival Research Labs ( Their

"Survival Research Laboratories was conceived of and founded by Mark
Pauline in November 1978. Since its inception SRL has operated as an
organization of creative technicians dedicated to re-directing the
techniques, tools, and tenets of industry, science, and the military
away from their typical manifestations in practicality, product or
warfare. Since 1979, SRL has staged over 45 mechanized presentations in
the United States and Europe. Each performance consists of a unique set
of ritualized interactions between machines, robots, and special effects
devices, employed in developing themes of socio-political satire. Humans
are present only as audience or operators."
