Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest is truly legendary. We have seen plenty of designs inspired by it. In fact, you can buy a toy version of this wind-powered creature for about $10. JeremySCook has shared a guide that shows you how to remote control it. You are going to need an Arduino Nano, stepper motors, LiPo batteries, zip ties, hot glue, and other simple components to get started.
Thanks to this project, you will be able to move your Strandbeest with no wind. The instructions are available here.
