Large Actuator

posted Feb 4, 2013, 9:22 AM by Jonathan Dowdall
I've been designing an actuator that is powerful enough for a full sized humanoid robot.  The goal is to get something that has huge torque, a parts cost of around $100, meets durability requirements, and is easy to build.  The early stages look promising (video), but I think that it will take a long time and many iterations to get it right ... which is why I'm starting now!
