Old school concept but very interesting improvement. I am surprised by these small design on wheels and gears.
The machine itself seems pretty heavy but those motors or servos handle it with no problem.
Nice concept, but for crossing rough terrain it doesn't seem all that good. for off road, a tracked or rock-crawler type vehicle would probably be better. Then again, that would have troubble with the stair climbing and bar crossing, etc
PS: In the first part of the video, Is it me or is one of the front wheels wonky?
That is fantastic. I love the dance stepping. :p
That is cool. I thought six wheels might be better but then not sure how it would cope with the stair climbing. I suppose you could also use aluminium parts, if not already, to reduce the weight.
cool .... but i think the stair climbing has to be the best part ....
