Strandbeest Evolution

Strandbeest Evolution

Since 1990, artist Theo Jansen has created numerous walking and moving machines. Each year, he heads to the beach with a new one of his Strandbeests and lets it able about along the, powered solely by the wind. This video compilation shows off some of the many amazing and amusing creatures as they march across the beach.

The guys from Russian car-hacking channel Garage 54 are back with another crazy build. This time, they took a page from Theo Janssen’s Strandbeests and attempted to give their hunk of junk Lada legs in place of its rear tires. Though its slow amble is more of a crawl than a walk.

Kinetic sculptor and Strandbeest inventor Theo Jansen shows off one of his coolest builds, a wind-powered walking machine that pulls an undulating caterpillar-like body behind it. The name means “Mule” but we don’t quite see the resemblance.

While it’s not exactly the most practical of conveyances, we’re still impressed with the engineering behind CARV’s walking bicycle, inspired by Theo Jansen’s amazing Strandbeest kinetic sculptures. We like to call it the Strandcycle. Build details here.
