Lego - T.I.M.O

The Incredible Moving Observatory was my first try at making a 4 legged  mecha.
I didn't have the small rechargeable battery when I did it, and the standard battery case was too heavy for it to carry, so I had to build a trailer. Turns out it became my favourite detail about it.

Description : "This Moving steam powered observatory is the poperty of Sir Mornindam, a lonely astronome.. It's a fully self-sufficient machine designed to bring our scientist anywhere in the world to observe stars with the telescope that lies on it top, originally it wasn't really design to live on it, so Sir Mornindam added a caravan behind it, to add some comfort."

Design of the walking mechanism based on the Theo Jansen's mechanism and this video

I, of course, did a video of it.
