).How does the duck robot work?
Explore mechanics with a motor and worm gear to provide the rotary motion for your movement and cams to create the movement. Worm drives are screw like threads that transfer motion in one direction (sideways here) to a gear that can use it at 90 degrees, making the robot walk forwards. The waddle motion comes from the odd shaped cams with an off centre shaft. These change the height of the motor relative to the ground at different parts of the rotations and make it look like each side rises and falls.
