Life is Rubbish

And vice versa. Theo Jansen makes the most incredible wind-powered sculptures out of recycled plastic tubing, water bottles and plastic sheets. This is not your average spins-around-a-bit-in-the-breeze kinetic sculpture.  For starters, some of them have a binary step counter made of plastic bottles.

Check them out in this short video (sorry about the ad). Learn more in his TED talk, or visit his website and be amazed.

You can see them on the beach at Exmouth on the 25th -27th June 2010.
