This robot is called Gimpy, its called this because it was ment to be a four leg walker but I ran out of parts so I had to turn it into a three leg walker. Unfortulently because of this change it does not walk that well, and it can not walk with the wieght of the two RCXs on it. I built Gimpy so I could gain experiance using ball joints for movements, my goal is to build a two leg walker that uses some of the same ideas that went into Gimpy. This Gimpy is version 1.0 I plan on making a new and better version later.
I started out one day building a four leg walker, however I forgot to check how many parts I had. So I'm building then I go to make the fourth leg and hey there are no more of a needed part! So I redesigned it and you get Gimpy, I thought the name fit this invention ;) If you go here: Gimpy v1.0 you can view larger pictures of this invention, just click on the sliding pictures on the page.
