Theo Jansen’s Kinetic Beasts

Dutch artist Theo Jansen creates “lifelike” kinetic structures using plastic tubes and lemonade bottles.

Not a product you can buy, not sure what practical use, not sure what else I can say, but I think it’s cool and hope you will too. So sit back and enjoy. 🙂  Watch the video after the jump.

  2. Thanks for sharing.
    Wonderful things he’s building.
    What a joy to see them walking.

    The old-days daisy wheel printer or matrix line printer were far more fun to watch then a now-a-days laserprinter.
    It’s just fun to see things moving.

  3. You actually can buy it, in miniature. The Japanese magazine Gakken included a mini strandbeest kit in issue number 30 in 2011. You can pick up a copy at Amazon (US or JP) as well as from the publisher. The cost is about $80. Mine came last week and I have already started building it.
