Kinetic Sculptures

BMW is featuring the work of Theo Jansen in one of their commercials. Mr. Jansen creates kinetic sculptures, which in this case is a large mechanical insect that uses wind to power its legs. You really have to see this video to believe it!

This reminds me too much of my experiences with Yo-Yo Ma in Pittsburgh. I always hear about these *after* they happen. :(
