LegoAsimo: a bipedal Lego robot

Fun & Games

Arno van der Vegt’s fascinating robot serves as more of a study of bipedal movement than a completed project. Get this, it packs fourteen NXT and Power Functions motors, 4 touch sensors, 5 tilt sensors, an ultrasonic sensor — and uses 3 NXT microcontroller bricks to run things. Yow! I’d be interested how much the robot’s namesame influences Arno’s design choices.
