The complex and articulated ball is one of the popular artifacts for collections and is highly expandable and collapsible. This paper investigates the mechanism structure of this magic ball by hypothetically decomposing the mechanism into kinematic loops and chains and subsequently into basic kinematic sub-chains, leading to the analysis of the mobility of the ball mechanism. Dismantling those kinematic chains which do not contribute to the mechanism mobility, the magic-ball mechanism is decomposed into a number of kinematic chains, and further disintegrated into two distinct types of elementary platforms with three and four legs respectively. The theory of the relationship of a screw system and its reciprocal system is then used to identify both common constraint and virtual constraint in each of the elementary platforms and to examine the mobility of those platforms. The analysis is then extended to the mobility analysis of the closed-loop circular kinematic chain and supplementary chains. A systematic analysis is hence produced in mechanism decomposition and in the analysis of virtual constraints. The paper produces a theoretical basis for the mobility analysis of the mechanism using mechanism decomposition and screw system analysis.
Mobility is the total degrees of freedom which need to be controlled in a mechanism for every link to be in a specific position and is related to the connectivity which is defined as the number of degrees of freedom between two given links of a mechanism, provided that the mechanism is constructed accurately that the expected motion can be achieved. The earliest analytical finding in the mobility is attributed to Grübler and Kutzbach . A generic formula used to describe the mobility of a mechanism was proposed equation(1) where n is the number of links, g the number of joints, fi the degree of freedom of the ith joint, and b the mobility coefficient. The mobility coefficient b has two numbers where 3 is for a planar mechanism and 6 for a spatial mechanism. The complexity of mechanisms incurs difficulties in mobility analysis. To this extent, Shoham and Roth  decomposed a mechanism into a single simple closed loop and a group of in-parallel serial chains. Thus, loop analysis can be taken into account in the mobility calculation as equation(2) where l is the total number of independent loops and the mobility coefficient b can be taken as the order of every independent loop. This coefficient or loop order b was related by Waldron  in Eq. (1) to the order of a screw system formed by joint axes of a mechanism. Hence, in the above two equations, coefficient b can be extended to taking any integer between 3 and 6. This led to taking account of the special geometric arrangement of a mechanism in the study of its mobility and to the use of screw system geometry ,  and . A typical case was demonstrated by Hunt  to use the linear complex to determine instantaneous screw axes in spatial mechanisms and demonstrate how the existence of many over-constrained linkages can be explained. The screw system analysis  and  helps mobility analysis in spatial mechanisms  and in metamorphic mechanisms . In the study of a parallel mechanism, the mechanism can be decomposed into several legs which comprise kinematic chains. Lines of joint axes of a kinematic chain forms a screw system of motion of this kinematic chain. The reciprocal system of this screw system gives the constraint wrenches of the kinematic chain. The aggregate of the screw system of motion of all kinematic chains gives the screw system of the mechanism. The aggregate of the reciprocal systems  of kinematic chains gives constraint wrenches which limit the degree of freedom of the mechanism. In the latter set of the aggregate, the constraint wrench which is shared by every kinematic chain is the common constraint  and . The common constraint is reciprocal to the screw system of the mechanism. The order of the screw system of the mechanism is then reduced by the number of the common constraints from a total number of 6 . The remaining constraint wrenches of the aggregate form a complementary constraint system. Any constraint wrench from a kinematic chain which is dependent on the complementary constraint system is a virtual constraint  which is a redundant constraint and the removal of which does not affect the motion of the mechanism. For example, an in-parallel platform has three legs as three kinematic chains, each of them consists of three revolute joints and one screw joint . Each kinematic chain hence forms a four-system with a reciprocal two-system of constraint wrenches . Three chains provide six constraint wrenches for the platform. However among the six wrenches, three are acting about the z-axis and produce a common constraint which is shared by all three kinematic chains. The order of the screw system of the platform mechanism is hence reduced by 1 from the total number of 6. That is b=(6−λ)=5, where λ is the number of common constraint. The other three form a complementary constraint system and act on a plane with the number of independent wrenches being 2. This generates one virtual constraint wrench which is dependent on the complementary constraint system of order 2. The analysis results in the following mobility calculation equation(3) where I is the number of virtual constraint. Thus the mobility of the platform is three and the constraint system has the order of 3 . This constraint is formed by one common constraint couple about z-axis and two constraint forces along x- and y-axes. This paper investigates the mobility of a complex and articulated ball with multiple loops and three- and four-legged elementary platforms. Each of the platforms is composed of a pair of legs in the form of the scissors structure . The paper starts from the ball mechanism by identifying its circular kinematic loop-chain and supplementary kinematic chains. The decomposition is implemented based on the effect on mobility. Without affecting the mechanism mobility, the ball mechanism is decomposed into an equatorial circular loop-chain and then into sub-chains with elementary four-legged platforms. Based on the analysis of the screw system  and , its reciprocal system and its effect on the mobility formulation, the mobility analysis is carried out on these elementary platforms and on the decomposed equatorial loop-chain. The same mobility is obtained from other supplementary semi-circular chains which consist of three-legged platforms and parallelograms in the form of the scissors structure. The mobility of the ball mechanism is then obtained.

This paper revealed the multi-loop mechanism of a complex and articulated ball, characterized the mechanism with three-legged elementary platforms and four-legged elementary platforms and developed mechanism decomposition in the mobility analysis of the ball. The ball mechanism has been decomposed into elementary four-legged and three-legged platforms. The mobility of these elementary platforms was then analyzed based on the screw system analysis which distinguishes the common constraint from the virtual constraint and produces the order of a screw system of the kinematic chain. The order of a screw system and the number of independent loops are used for the analysis. The analysis was then progressing to the equatorial circular kinematic loop-chain which forms the core of the ball mechanism and to supplementary semi-circular kinematic chains. The analysis concluded the mobility one for every elementary platform and for the equatorial kinematic chain and other supplementary kinematic chains. The paper used screw system analysis in the mobility study, implemented the use of the concept of both common constraint and virtual constraint in the study and developed a procedure of mechanism decomposition to which the screw system theory could be effectively applied.
