It’s almost as if the Wright Bros dropped acid for a couple of days on that beach in N.C.

I guess humans can be delightful creatures too.


#4

On our planet, we have Politcobeests that devolve.

These are lovely though.


#5

Mind blown. This is why I love Boing Boing!


#6

Maybe they did and decided they could fly.

Apparently NASA is looking at the strandbeest concept for a possible wind-powered robot/rover on Venus.

i want to know what i should do now

Nothing. You can’t. But with the arrival of the winds… then you will “do”.

:wink:

Now that Theo Jansen is working with NASA, they should both start working with Hayao Miyazaki and then we can all live in a more benign version of Nausicaa’s world.
