How many of you remember K’NEX or Erector sets? That shit was so awesome, but so frustrating at the same time cause probably every Erector set I ever got was missing at least one bolt or one beam and I could never finish it. If only I could have been more like this guy.
Theo Jansen is a kinetic sculptor, an artist who creates some massive creatures out of mostly PVC pipes. The incredible thing is, these insanely complex creatures will come to life and walk along the beach, sand dunes or wherever, completely on their own, needing only a little bit of wind to power them. No fuel or electricity of any kind — just wind.
