Wheeled to Biped conversion
December 29, 2009
Greetings. *spock sign*
I have been reading a lot of these articles over a period of time while trying to develop a good understanding of robotics before I begin making them. (It's always a good idea to test the water before jumping into a lake, right?)
I eventually hope to make a small robot and add onto the body as I go along. (Just let it evolve, ya know?) However, in it's final stage, I hope for it to be able to convert from a wheeled form (a faster, more compact and portable wheeled version consisting of the biped's body and head) To a biped form where the limbs have a sort of extending telescope quality to them, and extend to make a robot that can pick up objects.
I'd like to know if anyone had any pointers.
I know it sounds sort of unrealistic, I know. BUT! Isn't doing stuff like this the point of this site?
