jansen mechanism

A grasshopper mockup of Theo Jansen’s mechanism of his Strandbeest based on very simple geometries. The same technique can be applied to model / simulate motions of other types of mechanical movements. This particular mechanism uses a number of variables controlling the length and proportion between the individual members to create different kinds of walking motion.
