YouTube Video: Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention

To most the idea of combining wind, sails and PVC tubing just doesn’t ring any bells or ideas. At least not for me when I was sent this link by Larry R.  All the email said in the first line was, “what the heck does this big pile of crap do?

After looking at this “new life form,” I thought WOW!!!

The work is that of Kinetic sculptor and artist Theo Jansen. He builds what has been called ‘strandbeests’ from PVC-like tubing and goes to town.  Actually, he just could!  Holland is a lucky place to have this guy living there.

Check out “Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests – Wallace & Gromit’s World of Invention Episode 1 Preview – BBC One” and see for yourself what a little ingenuity and time can do for a guy with a lot of PVC tubing… a lot.
