It's Alive, I Swear.

This just blew my mind. I've always been impressed with Kinetic sculpture. Alexander Calder is one of my favorites. But this is the first time I've heard of Theo Jansen.

His creations look like they walked right out of fiction.

This is the commercial that got me really wanting to see more.

A little lecture he gave.

Here is a short video clip on how the "Beest" works.

His website has a few more videos, if you're interested.

So where is the sculpture in the first picture located? It is really interesting. Reminds me of those old Cadilacs planted in the ground along some highway.
