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.

Very interesting! Where is the video?

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

Ah! Very nice!

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

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

Wow! I have not seen a BEAM robot in years. I love it!
