Finally, the freezing temperatures are somewhat over, and the outside seems almost livable, as opposed to run-for-your-life-or-else-you-freeze-able. Our links also, no matter the season, stay well-selected and non life-threatening.

Visualizing Sorting Algorithms
Sorting algorithms are always interesting to look at, just wish there was more of them on the maker's website. (Via Gizmodo)
Building The Mountainbeest
Fascinating leg geometry inspired by Theo Jansen‘s Strandbeest, would be so awesome to see at MakerFaire. (Build by [Jeremy], via Hackaday).
Rocket-powered cats
This is not what it looks like, but against all odds, I so wish it was the farting pigeon and a rocket cat... (Via Geek.com)
Aluminalis
Another Strandebeest version, now in miniature and with some electronics added, via IEEE Spectrum.
BEAM creatures
The BEAM mailing list is still chugging along, and user Conner_ramsey shared a link he tripped over of a Russian builder named MegaBIZON. Wow. Mad props to the building skills using paperclips and solder. This is building robots "old school" out of recycled technology.

What can you do with a GM15?

...oh, just save the Republic! Just got this note in from Rob Meyer, who is using 3 of our GM15 pager gearmotors to drive his 1/18 scale R2-D2. Given that the real R2-D2 measures 108cm tall, that makes this cute cousin only 6cm (2.36") tall! There's a GM15 for each of the drive wheels, and […]
