Find all your DIY electronics in the MakerShed. 3D Printing, Kits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Books & more!

The amazing Meredith Yayanos, of Coilhouse (my hands-down favorite art/culture actual-print zine), posted news of these awesome mini versions of kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen’s now-iconic Strandbeests. They’re 3D printed, already assembled, and available for sale by Shapeways. Sweet. They’re not that cheap, at 106 bucks a pop, but hey, it’s art, it’s future tech, it’s a damn cool monitor pet to grace your geekosphere. I sure want one. [Thanks, Meredith!]
