Umm, Question. Will it actually lift up one leg at a time, or will it just kind of wobble? I've been trying to figure out how to make one that walks by standing on one leg at a time for who knows how long and,. Well anyway I was just kinda wondering.
bannana inventor (author)  robotmaster5 years ago
When it walks both of it's legs are on the ground, but it walks just fine. One just slides along the ground.

Like Mepain's links suggest, it has been done before. It is not very difficult to make a quadruped, crestind has made one, I have made one, bakenbitz has made two.

I know it's been done before. I just wanted to make my own verision. :D
And I am not very sure this qualifies as a robot.
bannana inventor (author)  Whaleman5 years ago
I was thinking that too, until I saw a knex walker in the contest so I though,"Hay I'll go for it".
So, by entering something that was already in the contest, you expect to win?
bannana inventor (author)  Whaleman5 years ago
No. I just wanted my own walker to be in it.

bannana inventor (author)  The Jamalam5 years ago
OK Itis in the robot contest. P.S. Did you enter anything?

bannana inventor (author)  The Jamalam5 years ago
