Walking LEGO Machines

Walking LEGO Machine 

On Philippe¬†“Philo” Hurbain’s LEGO site, I found these amazing 8-legged LEGO walkers.¬† Here you can find a movie of this walker… its very impressive!

These are designed after Theo Jansen‘s amazing walking kinetic sculptures that are powered by wind or solar power. Here are some great videos of these Theo Jansen’s kinetic sculptures.

Here are two computer graphics studies of Theo Jansen’s mechanism.
