    RX-64: Just one more weapon in Skynetís arsenal

    I remember being blown away at how strong my first hobby servos were when I built my Hexapod 2 from Lynxmotion about 12 years ago. In comparison, they were literally just a fraction of the strength of modern digital servos, and the gap widens even further when put up against a robotic actuator such as the RX-64 Smart Actuator.


    I was working on my mech Hagetaka the other night and made the mistake of grabbing at the robot to stabilize it while it was moving and managed to graze my finger in one of the joints. It drew blood and immediately reminded me that working with these types of servos was an entirely different ballgame than your standard hobby servo. With that in mind, we put together a little demonstration video of just how powerful these servos can be! Enjoy!

    I had nothing to do with the video itself! I just filmed the intro and setup the RX, blame the interns!

    If the price on these puppies ever went down, we'd need a new law on illegal weapons... crazy stuff.

    Yeah, because there should be a law against killing cooked chicken and ground up pig-parts!

    Genius viral work. That's the kinda thing that is has like GeekMusk sprayed all over it. Given my new job title, I'm gonna have to come to you guys for viral marketing ideas. I'm afraid I can't make that stuff up, but darn it if I don't know it when I see it. Grats!
