Theo Jansen Starts Pumping Out 3D Strandbeests On Demand

Theo Jansen's amazing-yet-slightly-haunting Strandbeests are something we've featured here before, but that was usually the work of someone else, and you would have to observe. Now, courtesy his partnering up with Shapeways, you can create your own.

Shaepways, if you didn't know, is a 3D printing press, and now Jansen will sell you miniature versions of his creepy beach walkers for about $US105.

The models consist of 76 parts and can be seen being "born" in the video above. Literally building your own, and encasing a hamster within the contraption, is also still an option. [Shapeways via Boing Boing]
