20-Legged 3D-Printed Strandbeest Kinetic Sculpture by Theo Jansen

 Animaris Geneticus Ondularis by Theo Jansen

“Animaris Geneticus Ondularis” is the latest miniature Strandbeest kinetic sculpture by Dutch artist Theo Jansen. The 122-piece sculpture has 20 legs that move in a mesmerizing wave sequence. “Animaris Geneticus Ondularis” is produced by on-demand 3D printing service Shapeways. We previously posted about Jansen’s wonderful giant-sized Strandbeests, wind-powered autonomous machines that roam the beaches of the Netherlands.
