Bless the new Wallace and Gromit inventions show

Dutch artist Theo Jansen has created these incredible, wind powered mechanical sculpture animals. The largest is a 10 metre-long walking Strandbeest, or beach animal, which is constructed from scrap plastic tubing and water bottles. Watch them walk or go to HIS BEAST'S WEBSITE for more (if you know what I mean).

Unsurprisingly, there is a TED TALK about this:
