Make this paper dancer driven by the four bar linkage mechanism seen below. Turn the handle and the figure shimmies from side to side. Could be a dancer, could be a goal keeper, you decide! Perfect as a classroom project where class members add photographs or pictures of their own faces to the character!
This interesting four-bar linkage mechanism produces a movement that swishes back and forth in a rather charming way.
Use it to explore the mechanism or as the starting point for your own animated paper character.
