The Tamiya Centipede Robot #Robots

An interesting video on Youtube, Tamiya Inc. has created a robot that mimics a centipede. From the video:

Here is a new Educational Construction series model with a bit of a twist (and a slither)! It creates a big centipede consisting of separate body sections and a central motor unit, with flexible leg parts helping (to) propel the model as they rotate. Universal joints between the sections allow the model to negotiate obstacles and hug the terrain. Its motion can be altered by changing the number of body sections, or the leg direction.

There can be a number of uses for a robot with this type of movement, very clever.

Looking at other videos, Tamiya has also built additional innovative robots. Checking things out, Tamiya makes a good number of robotics kits and paints.

Check out the Tamiya US online store for their products.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
