    At first, it appears to fail, but it actually is pretty cool. I wouldn`t spend 9 months of my life on it though.

    Needs traction pads. Would move and pivot alot better with rubber boots in the feet.

    this only sort of moves like theo jansen`s creations. jansen`s inventions are intended to be very primitive self sufficient animals that live on the beach.

    Theo Jansen`s creatures are a lot different than this. Definently not similar.

    @Devi: Ummm no, its not redneck. You have to be stupid to be a redneck, and this man is clearly a capable engineer and mechanic. You`re ignorant.

    Pretty nifty. Looks like their running the whole thing off a small out board. probably could use some heavy duty tread pieces for traction, and maybe a weapons mount for fun.

    This isn`t similar at all. It`s gas powered, as opposed to Theo`s entirely wind driven sculptures.

    Do want! I wonder what the gas mileage is? I`d totally scare little kids with this thing.

    Better yet, mount a cannon on it and you`ve got yourself a tank. I wonder how awesome an army of these charging a fortress would look?
