Creepy crawly walking toy

This little mechanism has crawled across my desk so often today that I can’t help but share it.

A funny looking “animal”, it moves under wind power. Easy enough to get it stepping with just a breath, it really shoots skittering when you place it in front out a fan.

Hoping to hook up a battery powered motor tomorrow to see how it speeds up!

PSA – The kits to build your own only costa about $17 and takes an hour with no tools required. Just search Amazon for “strand beest kit.”
