Size: 1 meter x 1 meter x 1.5 meters

Mechanics:
Two large DC motors drive this skid-steer eight legged walker at speeds up to 3.5 miles per hour. A "Compound Decoupled Yoke" drive mechanism causes the trajectory of the feet to follow an ovular path on the ground.

Background:
Designed and constructed by several members of the WSU Robotics Research Organization in 1995, Henry VIII competed in the International Walking machine Decathlon, taking second place. Henry later went on to woo k-12 students throughout the pacific morthwest during WSU Robotics' annual school tour presentation series.

Present:
Henry now sits in a corner of our lab, in permanent museum pose, as a tribute to the long hours, increased caffiene intake and skipped classes needed to finish the project.
