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.

Beautiful... stunningly beautiful.

I want one to ride to work on...it may be slow and go the wrong way...but who would care?

That long one like a marching line...swap these for all our armed forces, bring the soldiers home and charm the world into peace.

Can anyone elaborate on the tubing. I watched the video from TED.com but am not finding the stuff.

All the same how very, very incredible.
