Kinetic automata

I follow Theo Jansen for many years now. What I like so much about his design approach is the playfulness of it. He clearly enjoys creating and his ever evolving creatures don’t need to serve another purpose. Plastic tubes and wind can still makes us stand in awe, isn’t this wonderful.
