A Hoberman mechanism is a deployable mechanism that allows circumferential actuation to generate radial motion. The kinematic theory behind the Hoberman mechanism has found application in creating deployable structures for space.[1][2] The mechanism has one degree of freedom. However, in case of singularity it can gain extra degrees of freedom.
