The Kinetic Sculpture Race

               What could be cooler that a mechanical fire breathing dragon?

               A mechanical fire breathing chicken!


              And the hippypotomous.


For those of you who havn't been to the Kinetic Sculpture Race, it happens on memorial day weekend in Arcata, CA. Highlights include laps around the square, dead man's drop, a couple dozen miles of Highway 101, and an aquatic crossing of Humboldt Bay. All machines are people powered. These pics were taken during the opening ceremonies when the judges are ceremoniously bribed by the racers.

  1. I think you may have the first documented observation of a firebreathing mechanical chicken on a birding website.
