this is BoB, my version of the 4 dof mini biped.
his goal in life is to walk around and take over the world one 3d printer at a time.
at this time the 1st prototype is under construction. the plans are to use a ping for vision, dagu mini driver for a brain, and 4 9g micro servos to shuffle around.
my real goal with this is to see people build and release their own bobs and make their own add ons.

3d assembly made in solidworks 2010
awesome 3d parts thanks to mr. FrankNeon
Bob's first add on.
more to come when i get the 3d parts in the mail.
1/23-HE CAME HE CAME!
got the package yesterday and got him together last night. i did need to sand the servo spots a bit to get the servos in but it has resulted in a screw free fit. same witht he ping in his head.
so MORE PICTURES!
