Clearly that's a prehistoric Strandbeest: https://www.strandbeest.com
Everything old is new again, how about a table with legs
From the title I thought this would be about something from Boston Dynamics. It's actually more of a precursor to kinetic sculptures, which are themselves pretty cool, ex. .
From the title, I thought this was going to be about e-commerce, Christmas shopping, and rampant consumerism. As in humans are, to some people (possibly including themselves) just a walking shopping cart.
This and an associated document is shown in this video https://youtu.be/g-zku9FtNeI
Just asking out of curiosity. Could there be any patents that this could serve as prior art for? i.e. Does Boston Dynamics or so have patents for a legged cart?
This is not even the first drawing, it is a reconstruction of https://pictures.royalsociety.org/image-rs-15876, though it is much nicer drawn.
Better than wheels when in mud.
