This is my walking robot "Onyx" (version 6.) It walked on its own for the first time this week-end.
The goal is to place with a medal at Mech Warfare 2014.

Servos are 14x Robotis Dynamixel MX-64T.
Electronics are OpenCM-9.04 and a custom power control board and an Xbee Pro Series 1.
Camera and 5.8G video is HobbyKing cheapest option.
Battery is 3S 1800 mAh LiPo.
IK, movement, and control software is all custom by me.
Brackets/legs/chassis are all custom CNC milled aluminum by me; most of it powder coated black.

Some parts are pink, 3D printed PLA from my Printrbot, plus some white zip ties. This is temporary while I'm building the turret that will hold radio, targeting lasers, scoring panels, and airsoft guns.

This is taken by handheld cell phone camera in indoors lighting -- when I get to the qualifying video part (with all parts integrated and permanent) I'm hoping to use a real camcorder, and perhaps overlay the video feed on the main video.


When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
