Video: One Dutch Man's Huge Wind-Powered Beach Creatures

Posted by Zachary Slobig

Physicist turned sculptor Theo Jansen keeps himself busy in the Dutch dunes "creating new forms of life that walk on the wind." Jansen says his creations are getting better at weathering the elements. "Eventually," he says, "I want to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives."

Can you imagine a herd of these contraptions patrolling your local beaches?
