What an Inspiration!

This is an advertisement for BMW I passed by.

Just in case you were wondering like I was when I first saw this, all these mechanical devices were real. The artist-engineer, Theo Jansen, has made several of these models in other forms, such as 'Beachbeast' and Animaris Rhinoceros.
