Following on from identifying the Peaucellier-Lipkin linkage as a potential solution to the straight line mechanism problem, the system was created using paper. However, issues became immediately apparent and are listed below:

• Rigidity: The paper does not have enough rigidity to handle the f...

As per the MEMS actuator roadmap one area of investigation is designing a linkage system in order to act as an interface between the actuator and the paper hinge.

The linkage is necessary in particular because of the constraints of the actuator as listed below:

  1. The system is linearly actuated.
  2. ...
