    Ignoring all the weird conceptual talk, and the religious undertones... This is really cool. They're called "Strandbeests". I tip my hat to this fellow. Edit: Oop. I suppose this actually belongs in "links". My apologies.

    I think I may have to look into that, could be a fun project. That site has some additional interesting information about the designs, you read the stuff in the Beast Section? Those things have stomachs...
