Theo Jansen stopped by the Exploratorium Wednesday morning to demonstrate one of his amazing kinetic sculptures.

A total of eight will soon be on display.

He calls them Strandbeests, which is Dutch for beach animals.

They're made of PVC tubing. Some are powered by the wind while others are hands on.

In fact, you can move the Strandbeests when the exhibition goes public this Friday.

Just stop by the Exploratorium at Pier 15.

The Strandbeests will be there until September 5.
