Are you ready for your own personal A. I. ?

Posted on January 20, 2014

By Mario Tremblay & filled under Entertainment, Industry.

Do you remember HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”?

Looks right. I did it mostly from memory, and the still-assembled parts I pulled off my 4DOF legs. It can be daunting to figure out the parts used in an assembly via the pictures (and I'm an engineer). After a while, you get comfortable with the fine parts. Watch out for the mirror-image assemblies....

Guys... Guess I'll put the query to RobotShop staffers, seeing as they replied to my pricing query so fast, and they OWN Lynxmotion now... they should make a 3DoF to 4DoF kit for that unit... ~IF~ Alan's assessment is correct, this is the tally: ASB-04 / RB-Lyn-81 : Lynxmotion Multi-Purpose Servo B...

Oh don't be! My point was just that I'm sorry for not always posting the same information on both Lynxmotion.net and the Trossen forum. So I found it useful to post more details on my blog.

Looks like the Gethub has BRAT code: https://github.com/Lynxmotion/Brat I'd use something like the sequencer and program a set of leg moves to make it walk. That's what I did with my Loki project. See the Loki thread: http://www.lynxmotion.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3184&hilit=loki http://www.m...
