Let's Make Robots!


Almost a robot page worth


My Theo Jansen Walker is getting closer and closer to a robot-project-page-worthy machine/creature. The port side is now complete but not finished.

Complete in the sense that I have all components designed, purchaged, built and even assembled. Not finished in the sense that it will not move! Hence the lack of video. Photographs will have to do.


Jansen Walker Toy (sized) Bot

Hello everyone,

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.


What microcontroller shud i use?

hi i plan to make a hybrid-quad-walker with wheels on it's feet.  i have figured out that it need to dirve 12-14 servos depending on if it need a neck and head etc. and it also need to drive 4 motors or 2 motors! and then it need to drive a ultrasonic sensor and a few simple inputs! it's best if it is programmed with a USB port  

so please help me find a (not too expensive) microcontroller...

This is my second proyect i decided to make a biped ( in emulation of the metal gear saga ) the circuit that controls the servos consists in a pic16f88 and i also … Read more
