This is my attempt to build a low cost 4 servo Arduino Uno controlled bipedal robot that is framed with inexpensive 3D printed â€œI Bracesâ€; that can hold a standard servo and interconnect with additional braces to form various modular structures.
My goal in this project was to:
A. Show my 3yr old daughter that you can make anything you put your mind to!
B. Not break the bank (wife mandated)
C. Only run on 4 servos (to start with)
D. Stand >= 10â€ tall
E. Leave room for upgrades/reworks without scrapping parts
F. Give live commands to the biped
G. Communicate wirelessly (I have lots of extra Android phones laying around)
