Kazuhisa Terasaki is known for making whimsical robots out of wood. Basically, they’re wood, servos, and an MCU. His robot Weird-7 was such a hit in Japan, he produced a kit for it. Now he’s showing off a much more sophisticated bot, Weird-72, that’s still mainly wood and a crapload of servomotors. Kazuhisa’s website has lots of information, pictures, video and even step-by-step on building Weird-7. Unfortunately, it’s all in Japanese.
