Craft & Design Energy & Sustainability

Over the past few weeks and months, the community of makers centered on Sprout in Somerville, MA has been quietly hatching a plan to build a Theo Jansen inspired walker to march in the Honk Festival parade. Dubbed the StreetBeest, after the Jansen’s StrandBeest project, it is constructed of strapping, PVC, and a few custom fabricated drive train parts. For more information on the build and design, check out this interview with Shaunalyn Duffy of The Sprouts.
