Kinetic Sculpture Genius: Theo Jansen

Are you an eco-friendly stuff maniac, a kinetic art fan, or a renewable energy geek like me? Then, probably you have heard about Theo Jansen.

Let me introduce him for the ones who doesn't know him yet: he is a genius combining engineering with art. He is the designer of wind powered robots.

The Dutch artist, Theo Jansen, creates huge animal skeleton-like robots walking by wind power.

At this point, I'm glad I'll be able to see his works in Netherlands. Yet, for now, we all have the chance to learn more about his work, and see the pictures and movies of his creations at his website, strandbeest.

And the video below includes the BMW commercial with Theo Jansen, and some footages of his works.
