Walking bookcase by Wouter Scheublin

Walking bookcase by Wouter Scheublin.¬†“The movement is based on the principles of the walking platform devised by 19th century Russian mathematician Pafnuty Chebyshev… when pushed, the legs carry the object along using a complex system of cranks, links and connecting rods.

Chebyshev is known as the father of Russian mathematics, and there’s a moon crater named after him.
