This robot uses Servo's that transmit their motion with timing belts to several of the joints. this machine is incredibly flexible and shows a high degree of craftsmanship.
I'll bet you can't do this kind of motion with you legs.
Boy I sure hope that some kind of technology exchange can be reached. I really want to learn how to build machines like this.
It amazes me that this type of event is only just a couple of years old and yet it has reached such a advanced state in that short of a period of time.
The blue robot takes a mighty hit and reels backwards from the blow.
Watching these machines has given me a problem in my life at the moment. I can think of nothing else.
I wonder how long it will take before these machines are scaled up with more powerful servos. The first thing I pondered was Mag motor powered servos. and machines weighing 400 lbs
Thank you to all of the teams and RoboLympics for bringing this Extremely cool sport to my attention.
To the rest of the World If you have never seen this type
of event you have
missed a lot.
