awesome, favourite, 5 stars and a follower


It's fun! Maybe a V2 has an in-built EV3?


Awesome mechanism, 5***** and a follow, i want to ask you which program/s you have used to make the building instructions ?


Nice!


@Ahmad_Alkhatib I use MLCad and LPub.


Very cool project! 5* It was a neat idea to put the NXT on wheels.


Really awesome! Glad to have you back after a long break! Rating: *****


Great walker, very compact design!


COOL! i have wanted to make a biped for a long time but havn't tried to yet but its on my list of things i want to make :)


That little bugger is fast! And so compactly designed. Great job!


I really like this robot! It's so cool how it lifts one leg after the other all the way up, and having it drag the EV3 brick behind it on wheels was a really good idea. Thank-you for making this robot, it has inspired me how to improve my own!


Wow! Congratulations for your winning the Challenge! It's a very smooth walking robot! I really lke it! 5P+fav+follow :D

This biped was more difficult to make than expected. Rigidity was a big problem, as was carrying the programming brick. It's a vicious circle: you can increase rigidity by adding extra elements, which adds extra weight to be supported by one leg, which decreases rigidity. I compromised by placing the programming brick behind the biped. Instructions for the walking mechanism are included in the PDF.
