Walking Box

Today we tried to finish and present our final design for our walking box. Our design consists of a box that is used as a mounting platform for the legs. There is one long shaft going down the length of the box that is perpendicular to two small shafts across the box. The long shaft is rotated with a crank. There are two gears of the long shaft that mess with 4 perpendicular gears. Those four gears have hole in them that are off center and house a pivot point for the leg. The legs work when the gears is spun and the off center pivot causes the leg to move up and down as the gear turn. At the end of the given time we had a box that looks good and appeared to walk but in reality could not stand up or walk very well.
