Found this on Boca Bearings monthly Innovation Competition.
Interesting concept. very innovative, not sure how practical / effective it would be.
Would be supported by a bearing company. With the motors loose like that, it's probably very hard on the bearings. Saw some of his other vehicles, he's doing some very interesting work.
It doesn't count unless there's a phone somewhere.
it appears the motors have to run in both directions providing power for the walking mechanism, using lift to move a foot forward and the opposite to move it backwards so no gearing in the conventional directly from the motors more mechanics from what I can observe.
please ignore "conventional" still not entirely sure how it got there.
This is one of toys I have designed lately as a part of my graduate project.
I have submitted that to Boca Bearing innovation contest, you liked it, vote for it here:
thanks for posting this Paul.
The main idea is using the downward force, obtained by driving the propellers in reverse, to to move the legs. Also, to get the legs off ground SMA wires has been used.
