Self-propelling beach animals like Animaris Percipiere have a stomach . This consists of recycled plastic bottles containing air that can be pumped up to a high pressure by the wind. This is done using a variety of bicycle pump, needless to say of plastic tubing. Several of these little pumps are driven by wings up at the front of the animal that flap in the breeze. It takes a few hours, but then the bottles are full. They contain a supply of potential wind. Take off the cap and the wind will emerge from the bottle at high speed. The trick is to get that untamed wind under control and use it to move the animal. For this, muscles are required. Beach animals have pushing muscles which get longer when told to do so. These consist of a tube containing another that is able to move in and out. There is a rubber ring on the end of the inner tube so that this acts as a piston. When the air runs from the bottles through a small pipe in the tube it pushes the piston outwards and the muscle lengthens. The beach animal's muscle can best be likened to a bone that gets longer. Muscles can open taps to activate other muscles that open other taps, and so on. This creates control centres that can be compared to brains.
This is crazy and genuis!!!!
Really impresive! And I agree with graphicsweb`s comment :D
I don't know if to be mesmerized or scared as hell
Try not to lose your mind here!
That is pretty strange looking!

Something to ponder on your next beach trip...
I didn't even know how to react to this when I first saw this -- this is just too cool! :D
A concepção e a criação desta geringonça (figurado) ficou muito louca! Palmas ao engenheiro. Mas, sério, o cara viajou no conceito: "Since 1990 I have been occupied creating new forms of life. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic material of this nature. I make skeletongs that are able to walk on the wind, so they don't have to eat. Over time, these skeletons have become increasingly better at surviving the elements such as storm and water and eventually I want to put the animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives."
Someone has too much time on their hands. Either that or that sea air is getting to their head.
I've never seen something like that ;-) Thanks for sharring.
