East Bay Mini Maker Faire is coming up Sunday Oct 20, 2013. This Theo Jansen and Buckminster Fuller inspired walking strandbeest pod will be there.

Scott Parenteau, a commercial welder, made this mammoth walking pod inspired by his love for geodesic dome designs and Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest machines. This lumbering robot gracefully strolls across the pavement, powered by two commercial dishwasher gear motors!
