One "SchneeBeast" on its way to Gakken Japan .... .... Next day a suprise Package from Gakken Japan
Contents :- Glossy Magazine with my SchneeBeast in print, (riks TJWalker is on top of page too)
Plus :- a cool Theo Jansen テオヤンセン Animaris Ordis Parvus mini Strand beest.
With over 100 parts ........ and Japanese Instructions Now in English.
Many Coffee-Breaks ensued and the occasional Swiss Chocolate. Ustreamed the whole 1hour 20min process.
Only hitch was above when i nearly pushed the crank to far into the plastic (almost broke it).
Last part gears and "Wind Vanes"
Conclusion :- The Mini Strand Beest is a really cool mover and works in the lightest of breezes - on a slope it will walk by its self.
I have already taken it apart for a Solar Cell mod that will allow it to seek out and follow the sun - stay tuned.......edit:- or press here
