Here's a simple project for sci-tech families. A Mini Walking Bot using a some ROBOTIX parts, PICXAXE microcontroller,and a Handy Cricket
Step 1: Building the Mini-Walking Bot. Here are the parts for building the bot
ROBOTIX parts for Mini Walking Robot (L) Elbow connectors, Wheel Foot(s), Arms (75mm), 2 Legged Walker, Drive Axle, and Low Speed Motor
Step 2: Attach the Drive Axle to the Low Speed Motor shaft.
Attaching the Drive Axle to the Low Speed Motor
Step 3: Place the Low Speed Motor/Drive Axle on top of the 2 Legged Walker
Attaching the Low Speed Motor/Drive Axle to the 2 Legged Walker
Step 4: Attach Elbow Connectors and Wheel Foots to (2) Arms
Building the Mini Walking Botâs Back Legs
Step 5: Attach the left leg part to the 2 Legged Walker
Attaching the left leg part to the 2 Legged Walker
Step 6: Attach the right leg part to the 2 Legged Walker
Attaching the right leg part to the 2 Legged Walker
Step 7: Hereâs the final assembled Mini-Walking Bot!
The completed Mini-Waking Bot!
Step 8: Build the Distributive Controller using a PICAXE and a Handy Cricket
Step 9: The Mini-Waking Bot Distributive Controller (DC) built using a Radio Shack Electronics Learning Lab
Step 10: Attaching the DC to the Mini-Walking Bot using the Power Cord
