- Would you be interested in this project?I'm very interested, but in the sense that I'd like to see and understand how it works. I don't know if it's necessarily something that I would buy.- What features do you care the most for a quadruped robot?Smooth motion. How it copes with different and uneven surfaces.- How much would you pay for your ideal robotic pet?I wouldn't buy a pet type robot. But a 'project' that can be developed further I would consider. If I did buy something I'd be unlikely to spend more than £100 but it really depends what its capabilities are.- Would you prefer a dog version?No, I like cats.- Most importantly, would you prefer it to be an open-source platform supported by our Maker community or a well-packed commercial product supported by investors?Open source.It would be really useful to see a video to get a better idea of it.Can you tell us any more about how the local institutes have been getting on with it? What sort of level they are? What have they done with it so far? What are their other aims with it?
RzLi, you have done a lot of awesome work.That video does show how successful you have been in making your larger model move.The mini, with its 8 DOF does walk like most 8 DOF models. Less realism in the gait. But much opportunity to use as an affordable educational tool.Great work! I wish you luck in your adventure!
