Kevin Biagini shared the cute, super-simple “BoB the BiPed” on Let’s Make Robots! a year ago, and then launched an Instructables tutorial to help others to give it a try — and BoB mania has been sweeping through the robotics/maker worlds ever since.
Here’s what Erin has to say about BoB: “There are many BoBs out there. Easy print to make a fun, little, robot! Its robo-personality can be emitted not only through its appearance, but gait as well. A fun challenge would be to see if you can network them together to form swarm behaviors! BoBoBoBoB … There’s also FrankenBoB and BoBette!”
this is BoB, my version of the 4 dof mini biped.
his goal in life is to walk around and take over the world one 3d printer at a time.
at this time the 1st prototype is under construction. the plans are to use a ping for vision, dagu mini driver for a brain, and 4 9g micro servos to shuffle around.
my real goal with this is to see people build and release their own bobs and make their own add ons.
