Lintu - a LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Kiwi bird robot

Lintu means bird in finnish.

The robot is made to resemble a Kiwi bird, an endangered species of flightless birds, found only in New Zealand.

Lintu uses two large motors as legs. They are placed at an angle so that they resemble the strange posture of the kiwi bird.

The beak of the robot uses an interesting mechanism to open and close utilizing two technic steering links and a medium motor. For eyes, the robot uses an Ultrasonic sensor.
