More sculpture; videos.

Following up on Ted's robot post:

Terri posted this great video of Theo Jansen's sculptures over at the Endicott Studio blog.

In the comments, seeming like spam, there was a link to a Youtube piece, "The Wind"—which is completely different but lots of fun. Marcel Marceau, anyone? (and that's good? how odd).

Joining the two, Mr. Hurricane and the robot (and of course more), this video from Gwenda.

toys for cyborgs

After Readercon I visited the MIT Museum, and for me the coolest exhibit by far was the collection of Arthur Ganson's kinetic sculptures. Photos can't do them justice, and even videos don't capture the experience of seeing them in person, but these will give you an idea: here's Machine with Wishbone, and here's Child Watching Ball.
