"OWEN" for short. This walking droid robot has been in development at ameriDroid for about 6 months in between all the other tasks on our desks. The entire system is operable from a standard web browser, and OWEN can be programmed through the browser using a simple macro language (aka "programming dialect").


It's really easy to create and save named servo positions, change servo speeds, have text spoken, change facial expressions and combine numerous different functions together all through any web browser.


This is a fun and effective way to introduce kinetic computing to students, tinkerers, makers and hobbyists!


All items needed to create this walking robot are available at ameriDroid.com, and easy-to-follow instructions via video tutorials are available on this page.


NOTES

  • The spacers used to connect the computer module to the hip servos via the pelvis connector are included with the UPS2-C1 item. If the UPS2-C1 is not included as part of the kit, the M3 spacers or #6 or smaller screws will need to be sourced elsewhere.
