Creatures from TED.com

Found this on a new favorite website, TED.com


Creatures
Dutch artist Theo Jansen demonstrates his amazingly lifelike kinetic sculptures, built from plastic tubes and lemonade bottles. His "Strandbeests" (Beach Creatures) are built to move and even survive on their own.

What? You mean that my blog isn't your favorite Web site? Crap. I've got work to do.

I've got to say that I find it odd that they call it a "beast" who'll be able to "survive on its own on the beach." Yeah, until a drunk beachgoer uses the tubes for straws.

Oops! My bad. Next best website after yours DD!

I thought it might need a defense mechanism of some sorts to ward off nasty humans too. A hammer like was shown would probably do the trick.

I also wondered how they would breed.
