I'm not sure why this is called "kinetic art", but to me it looks like a very neat robot:

I really like the 'organic' motions that it makes, so lifelike . . .

I also looked it up and found this:

Yeah, iv`e seen them. They are awesome.

They are selling a little electronic device that you connect with your servos providing it with random twitches and blinks and thus, making them more lifelike.

Go to their site and click at products and you will find it.

yes, that looks great. It is a lot of work for something that is not that important, that's why not many people do it....And that's one of the reasons it's so impressive  :D

I think the way those legs are machined is also very impressive ! beautifull  :)
