 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.
