Kinetic Alien Art
Jeremy Faludi, 25 Jan 05

Look out--here come fifty-legged wind-powered robots from Holland!

No, really.

Dutch artist Theo Jansen has made some insane, and beautiful, things. Click on "film" under the first picture to see movies, or here are a couple direct links to Animaris Currens Ventosa walking and Animaris Rhinoceros.

The best part? The walking movements are all cam-driven. No computer control, no electricity even; just rotating-motion input and good mechanical design. Someone needs to invite Jansen to Burning Man.
