The Kid Should See This

Adam Savage puts together a Strandbeest model kit

We love artist Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests, and as it turns out, so does Mythbuster Adam Savage. Watch Adam describe and build a Japanese-made Strandbeest Model Kit. These advanced building kits can be found on Amazon, Ebay, and MakerShed.

(Psst… you can also find one of the Strandbeest kit’s instructions pdf’d here in English.) 

From the New Yorker, watch a video of Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests here.
