    And here's a link to the design software that allows you to simulate linkages:

    Someone had too much time on their hands. I'd love to build this but don't have the time or patience to say nothing of having the skill.

    Very nice use of levers. I remember a beautiful "sculpture" that I believe was featured in the movie "Fractured" with Anthony Hopkins
