I guess I am wondering... how does it turn? walking forward and all should be fine, but how does it go left?

Turning might have to be done brat style where the legs are moved in opposite directions simultaneously, but it depends on the foot design he uses really. If the foot is not smooth on the bottom like the brat, then the sliding action may not work very well.

Looks that way from the photos. No hip yaw axis is shown, so I assume that foot-slide turning in in the plans. This is the primary reason why I haven't done much with my BRAT-configured biped recently - it's waiting for a hip upgrade, but it's been losing the battle for attention and parts, so it's still waiting on some more servos and brackets.

@ Seamus : I said I'm short on Brackets, But I didn't say that I was also replacing them with Long "C" Brackets.

@ Everyone else :

1. I haven't done the Upper body yet, Because of lack of parts.

2. Yes, The bot will turn like the brat.

3. Just so I don't confuse everyone, as I said in my other post, i haven't finished the other leg yet, But once I order my parts from Lynxmotion, I'll be able to finish the other leg.

The feet are going to be custom made, and they are going to have special touch sensors on them, and I'll make them have little shocks near the toes, to keep it balenced.

hmmm, this is really interesting... last summer I wanted to get into vacu-molding... I guess I'll do it this summer... The idea of custom foot (you can make it real cool) plus sensors on the bottom is cool!

I found this one interesting, so why not post :wink: I'll probably be hanging out here in the christmas vacation, for the moment I'm to stressed out by all my exams.

See ya later

Umm...can we stay on topic here?

Anyways, i finally got a chance last night to replace all those nasty little Nylon Snap Rivets with screws. I don't think i need any pics though, since its just a small update. so far I've got $268.63, which, hopefully, is enough for all the parts that I need.

Down to the cent, nice.

You can probably make you're own vacu-molding for not a lot if you go to a local hardware store you can find evrythig you need.

Then You have to do youre prints, wich is going to be nasty I believe, lots of trying to get the right thing.

Keep us uptaded and give us piks of waht it looks like!

So, did you start building the vacu-molder? It should be very interesting!

Will the new Gyro Sensor that Lynxmotion has in stock work with the Basic Atom?
