Theo Jansen and his Beasts

Theo Jansen
is a Dutch artist who creates "beasts" that utilize wind and "muscles" to roam the earth. The "creatures" are very intricate works but have very light, wispy, graceful appearances and movements. Jansen has a scientific background and his work shows what can be done with natural elements, particularly the wind. His works do take on a personified quality almost--3D animated. Stunning. See the video below the pics...

The Undertones and its many incarnations. But what can you say about such vibrato?...Exquisite, just Exquisite.

Thanks DC for the enlightenment.

Reed+Rader Augmented Reality

TRY IT! Augmented Reality image by Reed+Rader. All you need is a webcam. The special "mask" places this digital face over your eyes--very cool if you are talking to someone over skype or other webchat formats and want to freak them out! Genius. Check out the creater's website for MORE.
Thanks to Hop On The Spiral Bitch for the image
