This Walking Machine is Powered by a Hand Drill

Izzy Swan knows the drill. He loves the drill. He must, because he likes to make machines that are driven by an ordinary battery-powered hand drill. He’s made a drill-powered table saw, a lawn mower, and a mini bike. He didn’t stop there. His latest creation may just be his best.

This crazy contraption was inspired by Theo Jansen’s famous kinetic Strandbeest sculptures. This walking machine looks crazy, but awesome walking down the street. It uses the rotary motion of a 20-volt Dewalt drill to move two actuated legs forward, pushing a little cart.

It’s basically a Segway that can hold up to 370 pounds and move for a mile on a full battery charge. That’s not bad for a single drill. Check out the video to see it in action.
