Strandbeests… low level mechanical AI or potential life?

A few years ago I saw part of a documentary about Strandbeests and was fascinated. Two are currently visiting Melbourne’s Federation Square and it was great to see them up close, yet disappointing they weren’t under their own steam this time.

Having just watched the TED Talks video below, I wonder now that Theo Jansen might not be a mad genius, but rather has spent more than a tad too long immersed in this project… Is this possibly a huge joke taken way too seriously?
