Everyone needs one...

I just assembled mine a few days ago and can't wait to take it for a walk in the park this weekend.

Like a spider, crab and millipede morphed into an amphibious vehicle, this invention by Dutch artist Theo Jansen mesmerizes by its seemingly effortless movement.

Assembled from a snap-together kit, this gives the average person a hands-on experience of Theo Jansen's awe-inspiring wind-powered constructions. Here it is in my backyard. For once I'm glad it's concrete!

Purchase this model and see Jansen's other marvelous work here:


And check out this hack of the kit here - absolutely hilarious!


Hope you enjoyed this.
