Incredible designs - the Strandbeest

Introducing the Strandeest, a kinetic sculpture that looks like a giant robotic ... thing. I can't even describe it. No electronics or high tech, just plastic tubes, wind and some plastic bits.

I'm blown away by how cool it is, although I also think we should kill it with fire just to be safe.


The photo doesn't do it justice. You have to see this thing move to appreciate how wierd it is.

On the one hand, it's awesome. On the other, it's creepy as hell.

Okay, they've shot a video of it for posterity, so now it's time to burn it to the ground before it becomes self-aware and develops a taste for human flesh.
