Orthogonal walking is a locomotuary principal intended for non-optimum yet aesthetically and mathematically satisfactory transition in two-dimensional co-ordinate space.
The Orthogonal walker has only two different methods of progress, either walking forwards in a straight line, or rotating through
90° or an integer multiple thereof.
This technique permits ready access to any part of a building, domestic or otherwise, whilst also affording amusement and stimulation to oneself and onlookers.
