|Pataforma, a Walking Platform
This is an experiment done by sorgonet.com about building a walking
platform who could carry things on and move on no-plain terrain.
The motors we used on this project were very powerful, (can carry a screen
on) and unusuals (AC 220v). Those who want to try it at home, can use any
kind of motor.
It consists on 4 motors and an aluminium self build platform firmly attached.
Every motor moves a leg with consits on two little aluminium pieces
joined together. The angle is about 135 grades.
It walks slowly because the motors, but its strong.

It's Alive! and it's walking!
Carring an old notebook.
It has also other practical functions.
We mount to more aluminium bars to do not bend the structure.
