Steampunk Lego

This freaky cool steampunk-style Lego ship is based on the Strandbeest kinetic sculpture by Theo Jansen. So it’s not just a scary spider-like robo-beast, but art too. If you’ve got access to Lego Power Function systems and Lego Technic parts you can build one yourself. If you plan to make one let us know and we’ll put your video on the site, as long as you promise not to take over the world with the scary-spider-machine. [Source: Gizmodo]
