2016: 20'tall walking Honey Badger

Post by chiefdanfox » Mon Sep 14, 2015 9:14 pm

Mouth sparking, fire farting. Theo Jansen quadrped, pulled by participants. Possible upper platform. Dangerous. Hard to turn. Possible steam engine powered. Use bacon grease to fuel boiler. Bacon cooking, grease powered, walking, talking Honey Badger. It doesn't give a shit.

I just figured out the walking ratios and how to crowd move this. It is sort of Ben Hur ramming speed meets the Flinstones. Fuck! I'm stoked! I am sure DiVinci would shit all over my idea. PERFECT!

Well, I can't come up with a design that I like. The TJ mechanism is super bulky if it is to carry any real weight / force. The proportions are all off. That's all folks.
