Jansen Walker Toy (sized) Bot
April 3, 2009
This is my first post here, don't be rough.
I stumbled on the this site about a month ago while doing research on a bot i'm building that's similar to Rik's current Jansen Leg project, that's actually what I was searching for when I found the site.
Anyway, I wanted all of you input on my project, my version uses a similar leg design and I'm curently planning on powering it with two servos and an Arduino-clone.
I'm trying to decide on the size, either a medium sized bot that would be about 8 inches in height and width, or a tiny 3in version. There would be lots of space for sensors on the big one, very little space on the small one.
The obvious drawback to the big one is the cost of materials, it actually uses about 10x as much since the parts are bigger and thicker. The little one would be cheep to have cut, but would only have space for one or two small sensors.
I plan on making the plans publicly avalible to anyone that wants to build their own, which one would you like to see?
