Introduction: Inchie

Instructables and RoboGames Robot Contest

Second Prize in the
Instructables and RoboGames Robot Contest

An amusing, three-legged robot named 'Inchie'. Feel free to copy or change him. I don't care if you 'republish' him. Please be patient with the movie. It takes a while to load after you click on it.

Step 1: Step 1

Make three. These are the legs.

Step 2: Step 2

Make the... well, I don't know what it's called. If you don't have this type of engine(yes, you need an engine for this to work) I'm sure you can figure out a way to put a different one on it.

Step 3: Step 3

Put it all together. Attach the red connecter thingies on the thing whose name is unknown to the blue rods on the legs. Turn left for best results.(Due to the way the motor isn't balanced. You can stand it up the way I have it, or you can lay it down so the K'NEX logo on the motor faces up. It works both ways.

     ha! my mates called inchie cuz he's little!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi! i made this wonderful machine but it seems my motor is unable to lift the legs and the motor is the exact same motor as yours! Please HELP!!!!!!!!!

    I dun know, all I can think of would be to try changing the batteries

    is by any chance the purple motor stronger or faster than what ive got wich is a grey motor?

    Oh, you have the gray motor. try my other design. The gray motor is fast, but gutless, it has no strength. the purple motor is slower, and stronger. Just click on my picture, and you can see the other model.

    ok. i have now got a green motor is that as strong as purple motor?

    i'm gonna extend the leg turners, and use shock absorbers in the legs.

    this is kenny boy 2 saying this is a awsome design and i have one simaler to it and i have a knex dragger that grags its self all over and i am posting them soon!!!!
