Amazing! The Humble Velocipede just got full funded on Kickstarter. It’s a bamboo walking toy similar to that kinetic wind energy beach sculpture I posted earlier from Theo Jansen. Watch the video to see how this specially made crankshaft powers the entire machine and allows it to walk as fluidly as a human. I want!

This is one of Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests, autonomous walking sculptures that move with the wind’s kinetic energy.

Bradley N. Litwin created this sendable kinetic sculpture that he calls a MechaniCard. You can buy them for $75 each and they will undoubtedly provide some great entertainment for years to come!

John Lash created this hand-powered kinetic sculpture called “When 17 Things Line Up”.
