BOB the Biped
I try to get my kids involved into robotics. There is only one problem. I have two daughters. They are interested but the things I build are not attractive to see so they are bored very fast.
I have a Ultimaker 3D printer for a few months now (I will write about this someday) and they really like this thing. The girls only want to print dogs and the oldest one asked me to print a Aibo dog for her. Great idea but … maybe some other time.
Last week I found something on the Internet what’s simple and looks great. I showed it to my kids and they loved it. It’s Called BOB the Biped. This is an open source project build by K.Biagini. You can find it at http://www.instructables.com/id/BoBtheBiPed/
Below the parts I printed. Next on the todo list are the electronics.
