Let's Make Robots!

Bob lifts bear.

I've been playing around with my Robonova, trying to get it to climb a rope. It is a lot more difficult than it appears, due to the balance when the robot is hanging by his hands. There is really not enough freedom of movement in his hands and arms, to do this successfully.

Anyway, he will pull on a rope though........ ;)

what about attaching a small pulley wheel to his chest/stomach and running the rope through that. that should give a more consistant location to program the arm to grab the rope from. to stop swinging i guess you could anchor the rope

Ha!  Very cool.  A robot powered elevator.  Does he let the bear down gently, or just drop him to his death?  :)

It's easier to just let go :D
