Enter the Strandbeest

Ever hear of Theo Jansen? Me either. My loss. He's amazing.

[He] is an artist and kinetic sculptor living and working in Holland. He builds large works which resemble skeletons of animals which are able to walk using the wind on the beaches of the Netherlands...[he] is dedicated to creating artificial life through the use of genetic algorithms. These programs simulate evolution inside their code.

Not convinced? 

How about now?
