    Ramp walking turtle

    Hello everyone,

    We wanted to bring in life ramp walking toys, so we machined one from Aluminum. Our turtle ramp walker is live on Kickstarter. You can check it here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...sts?ref=c27t33

    If you have any questions feel free to ask, I will follow this thread

    We just upgraded our toy by adding a tail-looking screw that manages how will your turtle walk. Check the video bellow:

    That's pretty cute....

    Wonder if it can somehow be turned into a perpetual motion machine ?

    In my opinion, another project may be more viable. Best of luck!

    Infinite ramp and absolute zero friction, sure.

    I am aware, this was planned as a small project to test the Kickstarter, and I have more larger-scale projects in mind.

    And in order to create perpetual motion machine I would have to add another source of power since it couldn't work purely on gravity
