Gallery: Theo Jansen Debuts 3D-Printed Miniature Walking Strandbeest Sc...

 
Theo Jansen's Strandbeests are truly amazing kinetic sculptures that harness the wind to move - and now you can have one of your very own! Jansen, in collaboration with on demand 3D printer Shapeways, has two models available for purchase. No assembly is required, and the fully articulated structural systems are ready to move as soon as they come out of the printer.
