    Wind Powered Walking Machine - Strandbeest Model - Assemble & Test

    This is a model of one of Theo Jansen's Strandbeest, this one is his Rigide Ancora 1995. He has gotten lots of interest from everyone including artists, mathematicians and NASA. He has a website, www.strandbeest.com
    It's very interesting and shows the evolution of his various types. He has done a TED talk where he shows his mechanical - digital logic allowing his beasts to avoid deep water.

    fascinating model build the parts are small enough that I would have to use a tweezer to try and assemble it with further adding to the challenge
