Guard Dog Prototype

Tue, 4 Mar 2014

What you need in a watch dog is the ability to see in all directions.

That’s where the 360° Watch Dog comes in. Turn the handle and he scans right the way round, 90° at a time.
As I’m sure you have already spotted, this prototype dog is based on the Intermittent Rotation mechanism. You’ll also have spotted that the body still needs quite a bit of work! I’m pleased with the head though.
Next version:
Deeper body that’s proportionally larger than the current one
Twenty percent or so increase in size.
Link up the mechanism to make it all work.
Spiky collar.
