Large Actuator

Post date: Feb 04, 2013 5:22:39 PM

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!
