Courtney and I got bored while boiling syrup today, and noticed an inchworm on my jacket, so we made a motorized Lego inchworm. We designed a ratcheting wheel assembly to prevent slipping, and an articulated body to power it.

Nothing too complicated, but I thought it was pretty cool.







For those of you with Facebook, here's a video of it in action http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?comments&v=1213639752032
Nice one, elfprince/Courtney. Sidebar, epic nerdage.

You're welcome. And scarily enough (for two reasons), I think that Ultimate Dev'r might actually be on the money with this one. How odd.
Perhaps that's how you know she's the one...

Unless it turns out you're just distant cousins or something...

Throw it up on youtube.

It'll take a couple minutes for Youtube to finish processing it...
Hahaha, boiling syrup. You silly Vermonters sure know how to joke- Oh. You were serious... how sad.
I pity your craptastic syrup-of-the-corn. I on the other hand am party to the consumption of a couple gallons of medium/dark amber every year. And homemade maple cream.
