It’s really too bad that we can’t be in two (or three or four) places at once. We really wanted to see Giger, the 9 pound, 2 foot tall humanoid robot with 24 degrees of freedom in action at iHobby. Giger uses 16 of the Dynamixel RX-64 servos plus another 8 RX-28 servos, and it takes two 1900 mAh LiPo batteries to keep this humongous biped moving, and move he does.
With a little fine tuning, and battle experience, Giger could be ready to enter the fray over here for one of the ROBO-ONE competitions next year.
