I Robot

2007-02-28 12:48:13.841508+00 by meuon 4 comments

Dynamically balancing walking humanoid robot - Sure walks and moves differently from Asimo and others I've seen. Much more fluid. I grew up readng I Robot and other sci-fi robot stories, it's a fascination of mine. I wish the reportedly 3-4 guys at Anybots much success.

Hey, they're right down the street, figuratively -- next time you're out here, give a shout and we'll go on a field trip!

Anybots is the brainchild of Trevor Blackwell, whom you might know as the guy who build his own Segway clone, as well as his own dynamically balancing unicycle.


I met him at Hacker's a few years ago, and got to ride it. He's a really interesting guy. I knew he was working on making walking robots, it seems he is meeting with a measure of success.

and I know his as a LISP junkie from ViaWeb, which became Yahoo Stores.

Seems to me that the dynamic balance would be even more lifelike (and perhaps easier) if the bot had arms.
