Hi guys, maybe some of you are familiar to Jerome Demers one motor walker and  other one or  two motor B.E.A.M walkers. This project is highly inspired by those things. The idea  is to build  a walking machine that has similar gait to one or two motors B.E.A.M walking robots . The oscillating motions on the legs of B.E.A.M walker produces by an amazing small circuit created by Mark Tilden called bicore. In this project, the oscillating motion produces by linkage mechanism. The reason why I designed this mechanism because I had very basic knowledge about electronic back then, and I was really excited to be able to build a B.E.A.M walker. It was a big challenge that I finally completed through some experiments.

 

Step 1: The mechanism

Step 2: Parts needed

Finally just connect the wire directly from  servo to batteries, then the robot will roam your living room :)
