The photo you see above is a papercraft walker, inspired by Theo Jansen, a Dutch artist and kinetic sculptor famous of creating wind-powered walkers like theĀ Animaris Rhinoceros.

The papercraft uses nothing but paper and a bamboo rod (crank-shaft) to walk passively like those of Theo Jansen’s creations.
