Robot leg test

3D Printing & Imaging Arduino Robotics

My good friend Joe Bowers is building a robot leg, this first test is very cool.

This is the first step in making my own bipedal robot. If I’m satisfied with this leg, I will build another and some hips. I am using a combination of the Lynxmotion servo erector set, and MicroRax to build the frame. I chose to mix these two because I like the aesthetic achieved with MicroRax and the function that the Lynxmotion parts provided. The brain is an Arbotix Robot Controller, which is like an Arduino, with more beef.

I know his goal is to teach it inverse kinematics and have it walking around, but I’m not so sure I’d ever want to remove it from the training frame. It looks like a robot leg in physical therapy. Great work Joe.
