Congrats to MAKE contributor I-Wei Huang, aka Crabfu, for his inclusion in the latest Gakken kit magazine. He’s especially thrilled because the kit is a model of Theo Jansen’s wind-powered Strandbeest kinetic sculpture and I-Wei is a big fan of Theo’s. In fact, he’s the one who turned us on to this amazing Dutch artist. I-Wei’s Steam Spider II, a steam-driven 8-legged walker, is featured in the article.
