Kinetic Sculpture's Crab-Walk Powered by Paper, Bamboo and Physics

There was something terrifying about the Lego walking machine, but this little guy seems harmless enough as he scuttles across the table. Maybe because we both know that at any moment, I can easily recycle him.

The paper walker is inspired by Theo Jansen's "Strandbeest" series, which comprises several giant wind-powered sculptures. It's given a helping hand in this video, but apparently can also walk without an actuator. But not too far or too fast or in a threatening manner, or it's headed straight for the shredder.
