Pete’s Foo

Filed under: Robots — Bob @ 9:02 pm

Pete Mile’s FooOne of the really fun parts of Robothon is the opportunity to get really good, up-close views of the fantastic robots made by other people. In this case, I’m highlighting Foo made by Pete Miles (that is, Mr. Roboto, if you read Servo magazine).

Pete has spent a lot of time making Foo walk very smoothly, as you can see in this movie. Although it walks slowly, it is very stable. In the background, if you listen very carefully, you can hear Pete explaining his challenge in programming the walking gait.

Biped walkers always get a lot of attention because they look really cool. Watch the movie and tell me if you agree or not!
