Gait test of my next project named Golem. My primary goal for the project is to learn ROS (www.ros.org) so I designed this platform to keep it interesting. Golem is roughly 2.5 feet (76.2 cm) in diameter and weighs 16 pounds (7.3 Kg). His body is T6 Aluminum with parts powder coated white gloss for a bit of flair. In regards to actuators, the legs are Dynamixel MX-64s and the turret is a MX-28. The camera system isn't ready so it isn't attached at this time. It has an onboard Intel NUC D54250 motherboard that consists of a Intel 4th Gen i5 processor 8 Gig of RAM and a 120 Gig SSD. Running Ubuntu 13.04. It also has a gyroscope, accelerometer and compass for bearing and orientation aide. Manual control is done by a Sony Playstation 3 controller paired to the onboard Bluetooth. It's power supply is a 6000 mAh military spec lipo battery. All code is written in C++. Much more to come but I thought I would share my current progress. Parts were machined by eMachineShop.com.
