Continuing from my last post about Strandbeest I bought a mini strandbeest assembly kit to help me better understand the mechanism and drain some idea. I was able to assemble it as shown in the figures:
I also took a video of it “walking” while blowing it with hair dryer but unfortunatly it wasn’t compatible with the website.
Afterwards, I played with some lego for few hours and that further helped me to generate few ideas regarding the design, dynamics and driving force. Currently, I have a design in mind but would like to test that with the lego first. Finally, I would like to mention that I am considering using parts of the lego since this would be considered upcycling.
