Lego robot legs walk like a human

Fun & Games

I love how this Mindstorms robot is able to emulate a real human gait rather than having the slow shuffle that most walking robots feature. Of course it is held up with strings, but it shows the potential of the (toy) technology.

This video was created as part of our project in the Department of Biomechanics at the FSU Jena. Shown is the walking robot “Pinocchio”. The project pursued the aim to imitate the human walking kinematically.
