Gigantor by Daniel Roganti

robot_wont_fall_down-150x150This is the second of my Bipedal robots. Pinocchio is my first and Giantor is my second. The construction for the Biped robots are based mostly on materials supplied by PLASTRUCT. Although some parts, such as the Torso and feet came elsewhere. The Torso is from a plastic toy pail I found in Toys R Us . The feet are acrylic soup bowls I found in the grocery store, they’re made by arrow Plastic in Illinois. The plastic materials allow me to customize my own design, with structural integrity , and while keeping the weight reduced. There are currently 2 prototypes which demonstrate bipedal locomotion using a gait similiar to people. I designed this using static equilibrium to simulate the walking gait of a human.
