Princess is a hampster, and a fast one at that. She plays the part of the wind or the motor in this family sized home version of the Strandbeest. So cool.

Theo Jansen re-defined beauty with the creation of these mechanical sand walking “animals”. If you don;t know the reference, it is honestly, truely worth your time to look now.

From the massive and magnificent, to fun at home for the whole family. The Strandbeest is now “Princess Powered”

I want one!

Hats off to those who made this work!
