Someday we’ll ride on Stompy

This blog includes many stories about robots controlling cars. But really, wheeled vehicles are so 20th century. For the 21st, how about commuting in an a six-legged walking robot?

Some makers affiliated with my local Maker Central (that would be Artists Asylum in Somerville MA) have funded a kickstarter to build such a robot, nicknamed “Stompy”.

Read more about it at the kickstarter page: Kickstarter page for Stompy: The Giant, Rideable Walking Robot by Project Hexapod
or at Project Hexapod’s blog.
