The following video is a documentary of sorts. The video shows the Cajun Crawler. It was a project that was completed for the Fall 08 semester at the University of Louisiana. The scooter was inspired by Theo Jansen's leg mechanism. Throughout our research, we found no application where Jansen's leg mechanism was used as a weight-bearing application or vehicle. The legs are made of standard 5052 Aluminum. The joints all contain deep-groove ball bearings. If you have any questions regarding it, please feel free to contact us. Thank you. The following links are videos we found that inspired us on this project:"Theo Jansen - Kinetic Sculptor"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcR7U2tuNoY"Simulation CGI of Theo Jansen's Mechanism"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GgOn66knqA
That is an interesting design, though I almost didn't watch it due to the starting filming style >.<
I would never recommend this design to anyone for a whole host of reasons, but I still felt it amusing and neat.
