A constant velocity coupling has been developed that does not resemble any coupling built before. It was intended for a specialized application, with specifications that are outside the range of any existing designs. A kinematic model as well as a subscale prototype have been constructed, and the latter was successfully tested. The principles of the coupling are discussed in some detail, with emphasis on their kinematic aspects. The formal proof for the constancy of the velocity ratio of this coupling is presented.
