Seattle artist Kim Graham has created a set of stilts mimicking the extended foot of a horse or other grazing animal. Her satyr costume is pretty much the best ever... And check out how they look in motion! Want!She is making them for sale, but there is a long wait time and they will cost something like $1000 depending on the optional spring-loaded hooves.http://kimgrahamstudios.com/gal-legs.html

Hi !Generally, wheeled robots sound limited, and legged robots too much complicated.So, wheels or legs ? Well, seems it's possible to take the best of the two worlds : Look at this robot !http://www.dailymotion.com/cluster/tech/featured/video/x3g2y3_rhex

I've got some LEDs that I'm going to be wiring in parallel with separate resistors. Does it matter which leg of the LED the resistor is on? Is there a standard practice? I'm going to be soldering all of the legs on one side together so that I only need to have one 'ground', does it matter which leg? Thanks.

Hey boys and girls. Over the past couple of weeks (due to work, mostly) I've been building this computer desk, the original here, and a slightly modified one. I've built it using 3/4" MDF and have it painted a gloss black, similar to the modified version. I'm currently stuck on what to do for support. In the original, he uses file cabinets and some scrap material for supports. In the slightly modified version, he uses desk legs from Ikea.I'd like to do something simple, but I'm kinda lost. I've had two ideas floating around my head for a while but I was wondering if their were any other suggestions y'all might be able to throw at me. First, I was thinking about making legs out of chain-link-fence style posts.Then I had the idea to suspend it. Attaching a cable to the front "bulge" on each side (see pic.), and attach the other end of cable to the wall. Using a piece of 2x4, or the like, screwed to the studs in the wall to support the back edge's. (I hope that makes sense). I'm thinking suspending it might work, but would require a bit more work.The idea of a floating desk sounds really cool, but I can't think of another way to achieve the effect.Any thoughts on getting this thing off the floor, minus the saw-horses, will be greatly appreciated.

I recently took apart a transmitter for a set of wireless headphones that gave up on me. I salvaged a few capacitors, 4 infra red LEDs, and a switch.The problem is, I don't know how to use the switch as it has 3 legs. The only switches I know of have 2 legs. It only has 2 positions (on and off). Could anyone let me know how to use it? Thanks, H4ZZ

I'm currently assembling an Obstacle Avoiding Walking Robot, however I find the legs keep locking up. Basically, as I move the legs the nuts are tightening to the point where the legs won't move any more. I have washers in all the correct places so must be missing something else. Any tips on how to avoid this? Thanks. James.

For Halloween, I'm going to be riding a unicorn, and the unicorn is basically two bikes but with leg-like poles instead of wheels. This is basically like a hexapod robot, but with four legs instead of six and pedals instead of motors. I already know where to get the parts and stuff, but need to figure out how to make a working leg mechanism. Anyone have any ideas on how to make it walk?

I made 2 sketches of a square of different sizes, then loft them into a leg. Copy and flip it 180 degree, reposition it, then copy the pair, flip the pair and put them on the other side. Seems like there should an easier way.

In quite a few spots of the PDF it says download the large version of this picture to see the details but I don't see how to do that. The attachment of the front legs and the back legs is different. I need to know exactly how to do both as I am constructing this table and it is very unclear to me ...

Just thought it was worth asking with the wealth of expertise and knowledge on here if anyone could offer any help/idea, or any words of wisdom in regards to getting me back on legs and out of my wheelchair, I will gladly consent to being a guinea pig (within reason obviously! lol). O.K. a little bit of me & my background. I'm a 46 year old male living in the U.K, 12 years ago through no fault of my own I was ploughed down a street by a car. this left me with a compound fracture of my left leg that developed a further complication that resulted in me losing the leg below the knee the resulting infections meant it wouldn't heal . the right leg suffered 14 breaks between the knee and ankle, the ankle was broken and most of the foot. the metalwork in the leg had problems it eventually bent. i put every penny into an operation to remove a large chunk of my lateral muscle to be transplanted to the left stump to get it to heal and to have the faulty metal top of the metalwork replaced, but and I kid you not, the bolt in the right leg had the head taken off!! meaning the bolt would have to be drilled out but that would shatter the leg meaning i'd lose that leg too, the op on the stump was a failure. so what i'm hoping is some of you super brains could help design/devise a kind of prosthesis and a caliper type erm... thing, for the other leg. well I'll upload some pics and a bit more about me tomorrow. thanks for reading guys & girls.

On this table the wooden legs should be attached to corners from the bottom or from sides. i need to be able to remove them and add them again and again... i thought about just using screws but i guess the wood will wear out quickly. thank you for your answers
I came up with a wheel leg design a while ago http://us.mindstorms.lego.com/nxtlog/myprojectdisplay.aspx?id=d5808c2d-b658-4b8e-b0f2-06c6152a2f66. Vex came up with this product and it looks a lot like my design. I think this would be a great design for an mars rover. I got the idea from rex robots. I thought, " Why not put more of those on?"

Hi a large tipsy guest fell onto my chair and split one of the 'feet' . It's an ikea boliden chair, which is the type that consists of moulded plywood arm rests and leg/foot all in one that are joined by a wooden strut across the bottom sorry it's not a very good description. the pic isn't an exact replica the arm/foot is more curvy.

I finished my version of the table. I didn't like the look of the class project, mainly it was too bulky looking. So I made this version. The top is a piece of locally sourced maple with the bark still on (live edge) and welded metal legs. The maple slab was sanded so smooth and routed by hand, It was then covered with polyurethane. Even though this is a woodworking class, the metal legs were the most challenging!Check out the write-up here!

Anybody know how to determine which legs are which on the IR detector (double transistor) in old-school mice? One leg is common and the other two legs are emitters. Is there a test I can perform with a needle type VOM that could identify the leads? These three legged components are very common and can be used to build really simple and cheap data acquisition of rpm using the microphone jack and 5 volts from a USB port. One leg has extra metal and is likely the common. Still I would like to know if anyone has a test procedure. Thanks to all and keep repurposing everything in your path. It just feels good.

It's for a play and the actor has to be wheeled around the stage a bit but mostly just sitting still.
My crew coach got into a horrible motorcycle accident and he had to be amputated above the knee. i had an idea using accelerometers and electronic gyroscopes to make the leg balance itself but i have no idea how to script or program. i also need to figure out how to make the leg move when it needs to and stop when it needs to. i have not started this project yet, but who knows i might be done by the time someone reads this.

Hello everybody! First of all i'd just like to say I just made an account but have been using this site for years and love you guys =] I have this idea for a tv stand / table and I am stuck. attached is a drawing of my table (tried my best). The idea is a table made out of a recycled door as the table top, clear 6'' diameter and 2' long tubes as the legs, a liquid that reacts to blacklight inside the legs of the table such as laundry soap to fill the inside of the legs, and one small waterproof fan in each of the front legs to create a vortex inside the tube. So essentially I want a table with legs made of clear tubes with a glowing tornado in each front leg and a black light mounted under the table to light em' up! I need help figuring out what would be the best / cheapest material to use to create the front legs. Also what type of fan to use that is waterproof and will have enough torque to turn the water. Any help is appreciated!!

I noticed that on LED wiring diagrams the resistor is on the incoming current leg. Is there any reason why the resistor could not be on the out going current leg? If a resistor was installed on the out going leg then multiple LED could be tied in through one resistor rather than having an individual resistor for each LED.

Here's a variation on my USB Hub Monster that I'm working on. I've added a couple of legs that have alligator clips on it to get to the full eight legs for true spidery creepiness. The legs are nearly done, but the body is practically untouched. Expect to see some glowing red eyes when it's done. There's another USB creature I'm working on right now as well, but it's a little shy.
