Buckminster Fuller's Jitterbug is a transformer links of which rotate about octahedral symmetry axes. the eight links can be connected via twelve plane angle-preserving double rotary joints. The Jitterbug is a brilliant discovery and a source of inspration for deployable structures. You may use the keywords "vector equilibrium" to search and learn more about Fuller's Jitterbug. See http://www.me.metu.edu.tr/kiper/Polyh... for more about these polyhedral linkages and some polyhedra history...
