I have admired Theo Jansen’s kinetic sculptures from afar for some time: he is the dutch artist/engineer who has created the oddly beautiful strandbeests. These “creatures” move in an animal-like way, and Jansen speaks of the way they charm observers.


Now people can own their own strandbeest, or at least a small replica. The 3D printing company Shapeways has made them available, printed in one pass, already articulated.
