The physics behind a waddling duck toy

Not long ago, we were pleased to offer free plans for making a ramp walking toy. In this video we get an explanation of the physics of a wooden waddling duck toy which includes friction, impact, energy transfer, and dynamics. There is even some high-speed footage, so you can see the action in slow-motion. You might be surprised by what you see!

If you want your own, here is where you can get a nicely made handcrafted wooden walking duck toy much like the one you see in the video.
