A fully 3D printable version of The Toronto Strandbeest, inspired by this youtube video.

Based off the original invention by Theo Jansen, the Strandbeest is a mechanical walking creature that harnesses the power of the wind.  This particular version uses a large 3D printed rotor at the back.  The power from the wind is transferred through a gear box and to the main shaft that drives each leg module.

The Toronto Strandbeest is capable of walking completely on its own.  It can also sit comfortably on its display stand (included in the STL package) so you can watch the walking mechanism do it's thing!
