Nice project but my eye focused in the control panel with the breadboard u have. WOW!!! Where u get this stuff? I want it!!! PLZ tell me some details about
I also HAD one.
 radio shack. i have one too

Its a nice system for breadboarding projects. Check out my Synapse-Wireless web page for additional breadboarding projects. http://www.family-science.net/Synapse_Wireless.htm

I'm working a small video clip that I will post on TeacherTube (like You Tube but for educators). I should have it available next week.
how are we ment to make the arms and such
Mrdon219 (author)  joedacoolguy7 years ago
This project was designed to study the gaits of a table top walking bot. An arm can easily be added to this bot using additional parts from the ROBOTIX construction kits.
can you make it without the ROBOTIX parts oh i forgot to say that is pretty rad
Mrdon219 (author)  joedacoolguy7 years ago
With the appropriate mechanical parts like gears and plastic fab pieces, its very possible to be such a walking bot from scratch. The ROBOTIX kit allows for quick prototying of bots.

Hey can you post a video of this in action? It looks to be great but a video is worth 36,000 words!

The Mini-Walking Bot is controlled using 2 small microcontroller devices: PICAXE microcontroller, and a Handy Cricket
