Moving sculptures, powered by wind

This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen.  Check it out!  
Here's the description of the video:  Dutch artist Theo Jansen has created what he calls Strandbeests - ambulatory contraptions that walk across the beach powered by nothing but the wind."

And here's another one: "Reuben Margolin creates techno-kinetic wave sculptures, using everything from wood to cardboard to found and salvaged objects"


  1. I recently saw the Dutch artist interviewed and talking about his creations. I think it must have been either on Sunday Morning or 60 Minutes. Absolutely fascinating. The man must be one of the most patient beings on the planet as he frequently watched his "beast" crumble and then had to go back and re-build!!

  2. I just saw an interview with this artist on CBS Sunday Morning. All the sculptures are SO COOL!!! I'm pinning the videos you posted! Thanks!!

  3. Wow it is a great post! I liked it. Thank you for this interesting post.............
