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?

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

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.

@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.

Why is it that when machines can walk they are so much more menacing?

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.

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

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