How it works
The functioning is basic, a M motor placed in the sleigh makes rotates a lever which is connected to the frame. The whole sleigh plus the reindeer are mounted on beams and an articulated frame, in order that when one goes up, second goes down. The M motor also drives the reindeer thanks to U-join and makes rotate 4 levers which are connected to the legs. The kinematic of the legs is made with one lever, a swing L shaped beam, and two beams, to create the beautiful movement. This simplified configuration is inspired by the work of Shadowfax and the work of the awesome Theo Jansen.
