Which ones? I am using two different types, the good Creative Werks ones and the cheap ones off eBay. Both are decent for this application.

I actually need 2 more 4", got any spares?

Yeah, it has a real robotic / industrial feel. Sometimes it scares me when I walk in the door after a long night.

Very cool. Looks very robotic and mechanical sculpture-y. I'm dying to see this thing walk!

Man, that is wayyy cool. And it's like huge! I don't think it could support a human like The Walking Chair, but maybe some equipment like a camera maybe. Heck, you could put a camera on his head when he's finished and make a video so we can see what it's like being a two limbed bot.

It is massive. When he is fully extended, his hip line come close to my shoulder line. In terms of load capacity, it can hold me while it's standing still. The actuators have a 500lb static load rating and a ~110lb dynamic load capacity.
