Evoking the Strandbeest kinetic sculptures of Dutch artist Theo Jansen, California-based creative studio CARV has built what appears to be a walking bicycle. Evoking the form of an alien robot creature, the bicycle’s rear wheel has been swapped with a metal skeleton comprised of four legs that are moved by the pedals. The structure was made using over 400 handmade parts and took seven months to develop, as per designboom.

Get a closer look at the creation process of the walking bicycle above and then visit CARV’s website to view more nifty projects. Also, view an example of Jansen’s kinetic works in the Instagram post below.
