Somehow, I missed Ray Girvan's "Strandbeest" post, nearly seven weeks ago. My loss (now rectified) ... Theo Jensen's Strandbeest is a beautiful, graceful creation, a wind powered robot centipede which strides across the beach on compressed air. Just for the joy of it, take a look at Jensen's own site and then move on to these YouTube videos.

Watching Strandbeest, my immediate thought was how profoundly different it is from Boston Dynamics' brutally noisy Big Dog.
