Nice looking lens!
Now that the hardware's done, what's the next step?
With doorways, any chance of being able to lift up the body and bring the feet closer in?
On an aesthetics note though, I prefered the antennas where they used to be instead of on the head ^^
Also I'm not sure about it but aren't antennas supposed to be a little bit farther apart to be happy? It might be for a totally different setting though, I'm not sure at all if it's relevant here or not.
One is Bluetooth and the other is wifi. So I should be fine... Should.
I always intended on moving them. I needed the pass through holes for the wires for the camera and such.
'Tis a beautiful, if massive, bot. The tab-and-slot design of the head reminds me of something, and it is really annoying me that I cannot place it. Maybe it is the slight resemblance to a dog's head that is triggering it, but I want to say it is something from a movie.
Are the black structural frames of the legs from Trossen/Robotis, or custom from emachineshop? Since you use flat pieces for all of the white powder-coated parts, I am guessing you used either 6061 or 6063 (T6 is a temper rating) which are usually inexpensive but do not like bending at room temperature.
While I certainly get the appeal of moving the antennae to the head to limit physical/visual interference with the camera, are the coaxial cables rated for that type of repeated flexing? I think I've only seen shielded coaxial cables like that used in 'stuff it into cramped quarters and never move it' or 'little bit of bending with a very large radius' scenarios. Although it tends to be made of small diameter strands, the core of coaxial is usually very low strand count (1 or 7).
Those are our custom MX-64/106 brackets in the legs. I have more designs coming soon with an emphasis on humanoid legs (think Darwin tibias and feet for 106 based humanoids).
I love that the custom brackets look close enough to the stock ROBOTIS ones that people often question it. Exactly what I'd hoped for.
