monty324 (author)wunderdog3172012-04-27

i think that fobo form project biped can turn, also it uses a ultrasound sensor so it can avoid things

Wow that is cool you should skin it to look like Huey, Dewy or Louie  from  the ole' Sci-fi Movie classic "Silent running" . It's the first thing I thought of when i saw it walk... Very nice...

That's a pretty clever servo setup. One question, why is everyone obsessed with arduio? a normal avr works just as well!

billbillt (author)guyfrom7up2010-01-07

It seems the Ardino has massive support and is complete and ready to go. Just right for us newbies.

why are his feet sliding on the floor ? are they plastic ?

billbillt (author)chosenone32010-01-07

Looks like the floor is REAL slick. Maybe glue on sandpaper for better traction.
