A Walking Bicycle That Uses The Mechanical Design Of Theo Jansen’s Kinetic Wind-Powered Strandbeest

A craftsman for The Q science channel quite skillfully built a walking bicycle that employs the same mechanical design pioneered by Theo Jansen for his incredible Strandbeests, a series of wind-powered kinetic sculptures. The craftsman carefully designed, cut and welded the piece that would replace the back wheel of a black bicycle.

“I want to show you symbiosis of bicycle and walking robotic creature Strandbeest!”
