Strandbeest by Theo Jansen - the contraptions walk the beach by the airflow trough the tubes. And when the wind stops, there are wind reserves in the "machine", which keeps on walking.

One of Theo Jansen's Amazing Strandbeest Creatures. The Dutch word 'strandbeest' means 'beach-animal, -beast'. (It's not an not an official word)

ive been looking for this for ages after seeing it at a ted talk - weird non-biological creatures!

Theo Jansen - kinetic sculpture

THEO JANSEN´S STRANDBEESTS - Living somewhere between kinetic sculpture and conceptual robotics, Theo Jansen’s creations are just as visually interesting as they are from a functional perspective.

Theo Jansen is a renowned Dutch artist who creates kinetic sculptures out of plastic tubes, that are more creature than art. He places these wind powered beasts on the coast and lets the wind give them a life of their own. A mix between engineering and art, they are entirely wind powered, and will shamble along without any need for direction or internal power sources.

Whether sculptures are kinetic or static, gritty and down to earth, or large and exotic, wind powered sculptures bridge the boundaries between man and nature.
