Crazy
Brian Micklethwait

So Crozier says: “So, Micklethwait, when are you going to stick up some crazy photos of crazy transport contraptions on Transport Blog?”

Oh.  You want crazy photos, do you?  Well, here’s a crazy photo:

And here’s some even crazier video of this amazing contraption in motion.  It won’t take long to look at this, and you really shouldn’t miss it.

Is it transport?  Well, it’s called the Animaris Rhinoceros Transport.

The Animaris Rhinoceros Transport is a type of animal with a steel skeleton and a polyester skin. It looks as if there is a thick layer of sand coating the animal. It weighes 2. tons, but can be set into motion by one person. It stands 4.70 meters tall. Because of its height it catches enough wind to start moving.

So, a wind powered mechanical walking machine covered in sand.

Does it explain things better if I tell you that it was created by an ‘artist’?  Animaris Rhinoceros Transport is ART for short, obviously.
