Let's Make Robots!

First quadrapod

Sort of walks on 4 legs

My wife was looking through some video tapes, searching for something as irelevant as our wedding! To my happy surprise she found an old robot project of mine, my first QuadraPod!

Not much to say, 8 servos, sticks, testing & fun :) Made before LMR existed.

As I remember it was tuned to walk pretty OK, however it was always sot of dragging the legs, due to the way it was constructed.

quadraped.. no not really quadropod then? No! Well.. as I wrote it then: Quadrapod! Yes!


a paint gun turret!

Hey Frits!  Great bot!, And as always the omnipresent paint sticks !  So what do you do when you want to paint something?  And, were there bots at the wedding?  Otherwise, why would she want to find it?

my robots
my garden

Whenever I go to the shops I grab some extra sticks. Have so many now, I consider start using them for heating purpose.

Regarding the wedding; The bot may possibly have overwritten it. That's what she claims anyway.
