NXT Dolphin

This NXT Dolphin will "swim" across your carpet by flapping its tail up and down, using a mechanical ratcheting trick in its tail to make forward progress. Dolphins are gray on the top and white on the bottom, so with a little work the standard NXT part colors actually contributed to the design!

Here is a video of the dolphin in action:


Nice... very creative!

It would be really cool if you had a method of turning... perhaps a front guiding fin that worked like the front end of a car? Fun stuff :) nice
