Sci-Fi meets Real Life

Theo Jansen is a Dutch Artist who for over 20 years has been working on Sculptures capable of movement using nothing more than wind power.

The creatures, known as Strandbeests in Dutch or SandBeasts in English are built almost entirely from PVC tubing with no electronics or metal parts and no built in power source.

The really high tech option is to actually produce one of these ‘Strandbeests’ in miniature using a 3D Printer.
