Theo Jansen: Kinetic Sculptor

I came across this Dutch artist on my internet travels, he basically creates giant walking robot skeletons powered by the wind. Some look absolutely amazing! I like how complex these machines are but how beautiful they look when they are moving. He seems like a bit of an eccentric inventor  “Eventually he wants to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives.”
