Wow, that motion is really smooth! It's beautiful to watch. :-)
Will it work with different materials or are there issues with the balance?
Really amazing work!

Poetry in motion!

Pity the one I bought from Shapeways only moves if it is kicked.

Print job has too many rough edges in the joints and prohibits the fluid motion prestented here. Sales pitch better than end product by far!

That is remarkable, Theo. Just like the big one on the beach. I don't know much about 3D printing kinetic art, but I can grease up John Deere combine.,

Like a robotic version of the Rockettes.

If we use this as the tire of the cars, we wouldn't need to asphalt all the roads, we could actually have green soft land instead of all the asphalt roads.
all we need to get the earth back is to invent a better wheel which awesome Theo Jansen's 3D printed Strandbeest to me seams to work
i suggest you should meet some people who can get help from your design and make this happen together
good luck
thank you
