Question: What did you use to connect the legs to the motor shaft?

the motor shaft is D shape and DIM=5mm.

Very interesting! Where is the video?

i don't know why it doesn't show up.you can check the url.

Ah! Very nice!

Very awesome digi01!

I love how (in the video) he flips his torso over yet continues to walk. You have got to love beam for it's intelligent simplicity. Great job with your freeform work too. Superb.


I love it!

I think a robot with close to no chassis somewhat is the highest you can achieve in design in such a robot: The components wrapping around the chip reminds me of nerves in an animal. How cool it would be, if one could make a robot completely consisting of a shaped bundle components and actuators - and nothing else.

And is that an old mobile phone battery that you are using? I have a lot of old phones that I am saving for the day that I can use the batteries - the phone itself is a perfect charger.

thanks for the comment!
yes,i use cell phone battery for the bot.it can drive the bot for hours.
