Investigations of Mechanical Ambulation
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
This was an early experiment on a new one legged walking machine. It appeared at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Near Future event sponsored by the Blasthaus. This was part of the opening event for the New Robotic Sculptures show at Yerba Buena. The walking device had only recently began operation and was run at 1/3 power at this event. The walker interacted with people for over an hour.
Currently we are increasing the power, adding pre-programmed gaits, and designing a wearable human interface. Expect this device to make an appearance soon.
