A biped walker?

I have no idea. A weird type of walker? Maybe I will post something at mindstormsworld.blogspot.com.

A walker! or a set of arms maybe? Not sure, looks like an abstract sculpture :)
Can't wait,

3D steering? Or is that to obvious? Is there any chance of a higher-quality pic?

Thanks,

LOL, Richard. Not a walker / sculpture nor are they arms.

perhaps a triped that can raise and lower each leg independantly

Is that a 3D steering control ? (yeah, the image name was a give away ...)

3D steering? Can you guess where I found that? :P

It looks to be some sort of vehicle. The steering is controlled by tilting the wheels a certain amount with the LAs.


ps. what happened to your post on the scan of the queen? I belive I know how you did it.

I didnt see the picture name. Just seeing the picture though I was thinking of this model http://www.vexrobotics.com/vex-tomahawk.shtml.

It seems to be a swing. What is the real answer?

BlueToothKiwi said...

You guys are really good. There are some really good guesses. Well done to all of you who guessed it was 3D steering.

I will post a full post later in the week.

well the other two confessed that the 3d steering was from the picture name but i didnt see the name (I didnt click the picture). But was my explanation correct? is that what defines 3d steering? and what happened to the queen scan post?

megamindstorm101: Thank you for your comment.
(1) The Vex version of the Dodge concept vehicle your link points to uses a different principal. Please check out this blog post I posted today which explains the wheel lean and '3d steering' in more detail.

(2) Watch this space for the NXT Image editor - I will repost that together with more details in a couple of weeks.

Thanks.
