Tars Robot Concept

 
#1

I started working on a TARS concept robot.This only simulates walking action.The robot is made from foam board and stands at almost 5 feet tall. Uses a single servo for walking motion and has a lower drive train with 2 dc motors.Two 6 inch lazy susan turntables support the upper part of the legs to robot. I wanted to share what i am building because i have really wanted to do this project since watching the movie Interstellar. I have an Android tablet mounting on the front.. I made the legs skinnier than what they would be but the real TARS would be two wide for moving it around my workshop or getting thru door ways..Will post more updates as possible.Excuse video quality..

That's brilliant! I was wondering when someone was going to make one! The physics behind it's actually walking in the movie confuses me - but it'll be neat to see ! Maybe throw wheels and simulate it's walking?

It uses the physics of walking with crutches.
