Kame the Quadruped

Kame is all about movement (Source: Hackaday)


Kame is a 3D printed robot designed in FreeCAD that takes the form of a little quadruped. The 3D printed parts are done in PLA and it was developed to study different gaits and algorithms for generating them.

Based on an ESP8266 WiFi module, it has eight servos (two per leg) and a small LiPo battery. It can be programmed with Arduino, and to see it marching towards you with steely purpose is both impressive and terrifying.

For more information, including full FreeCAD sources and source code, check out its GitHub repository. The Hackaday page also has detailed build instructions.
