Strandbeest Evolution 2018

(YouTube link)

Dutch engineer/artist Theo Jansen is known for his Strandbeests, giant kinetic sculptures that move along the beach on their own, powered only by the wind. We posted quite a few of them over the years. Over time, the Strandbeests have evolved to be bigger, lighter, and faster. They seem to be living beings, although they are made of PVC pipe, string, and zip ties. Check out this video showing off his latest, most kinetic Strandbeests. At the very end, you see Jansen with his Animaris Rhinoceros Transport from 2006, just to show how far his art has come. -via Geekologie

'Neat' to be sure, but I've always wondered just what ultimately happens to these things. Do they get stuck in sand dunes? Do they get stuck in the water? Do they lock up due to sand in the joints? Or do they keep going so long as there is an open beach?
