3D Printed Strandbeest: Still Alive

by Lambert Varias

Dutch artist Theo Jansen is known for his strandbeest – kinetic sculptures that are powered by the wind and have life-like gait. We’ve featured a couple of fan-made strandbeest, but it turns out Jansen is also selling miniature ones that are printed by Shapeways.

This is the latest version of Jansen’s 3D printed strandbeest, the Animaris Geneticus Bellus. It has slimmer legs and better joints compared to its predecessors. You can push it forward to make it walk, but you can also equip it with a wind-blown propeller to make it self-sufficient like its bigger brothers.

Animate your browser and head to Jansen’s Shapeways shop to order a strandbeest. It costs $121 (USD), while the propeller costs $46.
