Hi all

The Chopstix project mentioned in [url=robosavvy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=32487]another thread[/url] has now evolved into an 8 legged monster (~60cm; 5kg) that is now available from RoboSavvy.

Bellow are some videos of the Spider during it's development.

Quoting Limor's post:

Russ from Dagu, the inventor of the Chopstix robot has productised the "octapod" and we will soon have it up for sale at RoboSavvy store.

The kit version has a whole lot of goodness for big sized (~60cm, ~5kg) robot with a relatively small pricetag (probably around ~400GBP). Here is a preliminary list of components and features:
  • Dagu Spider controller (Arduino) + Dagu HD servo sheild
  • Dagu Wild thumper switch (and relay)
  • Dagu Pan tilt kits 2pcs (includes 4 small servos) + 2 Dagu Compound eyes (infrared distance sensors)
  • 24 x 17kgs-cm @ 7.2 servos (with brass gears and dual bearings)
  • additional servo mounted between the front legs. This is to allow a small optional range finding sensor
  • 300 nuts and bolts
  • foot collision sensors (to deal with uneven terrain)
  • leg clutch mechanism to impact prevent wear and damage
  • 5000mAH LiPo battery + charger
  • Optional embedded linux + wifi + webcam + RoboRealm software
