Week TechVideo, 2010 #30 - Climbing the stairs

Humanoid robotic forms and capabilities, have always been an appealing and complex challenge.

222Doc (aka Mac) has been working for already sometime in his LEGO Biped X2, implementing increasingly complex movements and taking risks. Sometimes sharing his failures, but also many successful 'steps'.

Last week X2 managed to become the first LEGO biped robot to climb stairs up and down. Take a look!

Still quite far from Honda Asimo performance, but we never know...

You may look at other previous X2 achievements from 222Doc's blog or YouTube video channel.
