Passive-dynamic mini-walker robot

This little guy is a passive-dynamic robot walker we made (meaning that he works through gravity and balance alone, not by a battery or anything). He was not entirely successful but we liked him anyway. It was interesting to see how the little feet could be induced down a slope. Lots of simple robots use this principle.

We learned how to make this walker from this book (great book, by the way!), and you can download .pdf instructions here.

Here's another (better) video of one of these walking.

You can also see one here.
