Started another whole new android this weekend. Number 6
will remain for various stuff although I might seperate
it's arms and legs into two machines...
The new one will be my main constuction focus for now; this
android is kind of a cross between 3 and 6. It has quite
similar legs to 3 but will use wiper motors in the body
pulling cables to the leg joints so it can be more spindly
than 6. This is why it's called 'Mr Stick Legs'.
I am trying to reduce the motor count from five to three
for walking and also build in the ability to rotate the
legs so it can walk around corners and turn on the spot.
Because the legs don't have any motors mounted in them they
are also able to bend further and so it should be able to
go up steps/stairs. The body will also hinge at the waist
so it can shift its centre of gravity forwards and
Although mainly it's just some stick-legs at the moment...
more coming soon.
