video!!! Looks cool. I have his book and dvd. Love his things. Yours, too :)
Does his book have any technical specs on them? Especially the more complex ones run on air pressure?
He shows quite a few close-ups of several of his creatures. There are specs on the leg geometry of the walking structures. However, I cannot find anything on the air pressure sensors you mention, darn it!
i didn't know he had a book or dvd. what are they called?
wow, good job!
