Week TechVideo, 2010 #36 - Quad-ped X-4 "Sloth"

It was just a few weeks ago, that we have seen here a biped from 222Doc (Mac), climbing stairs.

Now he decided for another challenge. To build a pre-programmed quad-ped climbing robot (A "Sloth" as he called it)), in a step ladder exercise.

It uses NXT components, PF motors and also some elements.
  • 1x NXT
  • 3x mindsensors NXTmmx
  • 1x mindsensors NXTmux, RCX to PF
  • Several mindsensors flex cables
  • 8x NXT motors, for all articulations
  • 4x PF M-motors (grabbers)
  • and a lot of other LEGO parts...

And as we can learn from Mac, on his answers to the video comments, yes it has fallen during the try and error process. Fortunately no serious damage occurred.

What's next Mac

Nice! But it is a kind of lengthy movie. I might have been sped up for the viewers convenience...

The programming is awsome!

Sorry about the Sony issue. Though I wonder if it is a country thing? Why just Germany? Odd. I was going to load it at my home page but they say the file is to big :(
