Kinetic Sculpture

John Nack:
Dutch artist/engineer Theo Jansen makes unbelievable kinetic sculptures; it's as if da Vinci had access to PVC. This video (a BMW ad, as it happens) shows off some of his walking machines in motion on the beach. Wired covers the genesis and evolution of Jansen's work, and you can see his two-ton Animaris Rhinoceros Transport on the move in this video. Many more photos are on his site.
