C. J. Sangwin’s linkage movies

Chris Sangwin has a nice collection of linkage movies at How round is your circle?.

Particularly nice are the straight line mechanisms such as Hart’s second straight-line mechanism.

His example of the Sarrus linkage is also found on YouTube:

Fred Klingener has generated a number of interesting mechanism animations.  My favorite is the Peaucellier straight line mechanism.  You will find a table of 16 or so animations at his site:
