OmNomNom - Animal Mimicry: Mechatronics

OmNomNom is a robot that mimics the animal movement of an alligator. The four-bar linkage I designed very closely replicates an alligator's stride. OmNomNom even bends in the middle of the body, to lengthen the stride and more closely match the look of an alligator in motion. For a little quirky flair, we even made the jaw open and close at it walks!
