Algo.Rhythm - set of drum robots with programmable behavior - by Huaishu

Algo.Rhythm is a set of drum robots with programmable behavior. Each drum robot records pattern of beats when knocked on, and replays the rhythm by hitting its neighbor robot with a pre-programmed twist. Arrange the kit to compose algorithm based drumming performance, and learn computational concepts like sequential execution, loop, and forking through improvising.

Robot 3S-1

Robot 3S-1 | Heron | Scoop.it

This project is my first attempt to make a biped walker — and using only three servos. 3S-1 (for Three-Servo walker One) is modelled loosely after the VStone RB300, as seen in their gallery and discussed in this RoboSavvy thread.
