Let's Make Robots!

Painfully slow crawler WIP

Moves forward

Used Arduino Uno and Adafruit motor shield to control this robot. I tried to build an "inchworm" similar to the hexbug design, but it went horribly wrong! The final result is cool, not quite what I wanted, but a good learning experience none the less. Again used steel strapping that is commonly used for plumbing applications to construct the frame and most of the linkages.

I know it's all in greek, but maybe it can be of some help.


@Maxhirez Ideally there would need to be a third servo at the bottom to pivot the structure. For this particular design I need to go back to the proverbial drawing board though... @jorgen: Most of what I do is art, so yes!

it is art

How does it corner?

is an interesting locomotion theme. With all the zip ties, obviously a prototype. :D
