Tripedal wiggle-walking; a study

Behold: The SwashBot! (via)

It's based around swashplate-type linkages, and it's another fine CrabFu product (previously). It's not as steam-y or track-y as CrabFu's usual products, and it's also not yet mentioned on the CrabFu site.

(UPDATE: Now it is!)

That cat's clearly dealt with things a lot scarier than this.

    This thing is absolutely fascinating. The buzz from the moving servos and the ability to move in a twitchy manner really gives it an 'alive' vibe. The only thing I'd try to change is maybe figuring out a way to propel it forwards a bit faster.

    Wow! That's pretty cool for being made out of spare bits, and just the slightest bit creepy... It's the red eyes that sell it.

    The cat in the second one does seem rather less than terrified, doesn't it?
