[Note: The seperate propeller does not fit the Ondula version! We are working on a propeller for the Ondula]
Theo Jansen’s 3D printed Strandbeest continues to evolve with an even more elaborate walking mechanism and a centipede-like walking motion. The latest evolution called 'Animaris Geneticus Ondularis' walks on twenty separate legs that move in a wave sequence. This new configuration results in a fluent walking motion, different from its twelve legged predecessors. It incorporates 122 moving parts, showcasing the complexity of mechanisms possible with 3D printed fabrication. It is also slightly larger than its predecessors. The operating principle of 'Animaris Geneticus Ondularis' is based on one of Theo Jansen's original beach walkers, the 'Animaris Ondula'.
Currently there is no propellor available for this version, it is being worked on though!
In the movie we used a piece of cardboard for walking on. Anything will do as long as it's a little rough for some friction!
