MAKE friend and Wired.it blogger Francesco “Frankie” Fondi wrote in to share this cool Theo Jansen model:

Last saturday I’d been invited by Gakken to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series “Otona no Kagaku”: an hybrid of magazine and book with an educational toy attached to each release. Beside showing the complete collection of the cult toys released in a decade, Toshiyuki Nishimura, chef editor of the publication, presented the Animaris Imperio, a new kit based on Theo Jansen mechanical animals. In the past Gakken already released two Strandbeest kits but this time the model is not a scale replica of a real Theo Jansen self-propelling animal but a custom biped design created only for Japan.

Thanks, Frankie!
