Rotary to Linear motion.

interesting approach: The "Orbital Gear" actuator in this video, would make a good rocking gear for Luc's pendulum; The traveler rod Just needs a lever to make the 90 degree change in direction (sketch below). Once the transition to vertical is accomplished, a simple "Scotch Yoke" can serve as actuator (Below right).
