Hoberman mechanism

Hoberman mechanism is a deployable mechanism. This mechanism allows circumferential actuation to generate radial motion. Kinematic theory of hoberman mechanism has found application in creating deployable structures for space.[1][2] The mechanism have one degree of freedom. However in case of singularity they can gain extra degree of freedom.
