theo jansen Answered

Does anybody know the exact dimensions of theo jansen kinetic sculpture's legs? On a video theo jansen said that 11 different dimensions would work, but 1 was the best. Does anybody know the dimensions? I'm going to build a solar version just to impress people in this solar contest.

I realize that this is very late, but I thought I would let you all know that the information in that email is now available directly on his website.

Simulation shows the dimensions and allows adjustments

Seconded - what solar contest? (No, I don't know the exact dimensions, but what I did when I made a card version was take a screen-shot of a youtube animation of the legs, print it out and measure that. Sorry, before you ask, I don't have the measurements or the model any more.)
