Wacky Walker

By Ben Everard. Posted

This brilliant creation by Greg Zumwalt stretches the definition of walking a little for us, but it does have such charm and style that we can’t help but love it. From standing on four feet, it rises on to two, before leaning forward on to four feet, and then it does it again. That’s less walking action than a controlled forward roll in our book, and that’s exactly how it works: a counterweight moves along the inside the ellipse that forms the body, propelling the model up and down and forwards. Silly, yes, but also brilliant.
