Let's Make Robots!

Theo Jansen style robot leg: prototype #1

For my dreamed symbiotic robots, I am looking for an alternative locomotion. For the passive robot (the trailer) anyway. The active tractor probably needs tracks. I heard Theo Jansen say on TED (improving on the wheel, 4 minutes into the video) that his design for a legged creature is (theoretically) more energy efficient than wheels or tracks. And equally sufficient in rough terrain. So I'll give it a try.


Yes, it is made from the same rapid protoyping material PBCB (pizza box card board) as my power coupling.
