I love animals and robot animals! And I really like what you built: nice design and light constructed! 5P+fav


Thanks, everyone. I love working with walking bots. Such a challenge to make them actually walk and hold together well while at the same time not falling over.


Like the name, like the bot. Looks unstable though. 3***


Every step we take stops us from falling from the last. :)


Like it. Rating: ****

This is my second version of my canine bot. I improved the feet so they grip better when it walks. I had to modify how the brick attaches to account for the added depth of the rechargeable battery. I also changed the bark to a growl which you can see in the video when an obstacle obstructs it at 25 cm. I changed the strength of the legs by adding a beam, removing the play in the ankles on each leg. I also changed the ears so they look more like a dog and less like a cat.
